The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) publishes several series of documents that provide up-to-date information about environmental site assessment and remediation. The EPA Environmental Engineering Sourcebook includes papers and bulletins that focus on remediation of soil and groundwater, making them available in a convenient form.
This book compiles thirty-five documents- written by recognized leaders - on major methods and promising new techniques for hazardous waste treatment and site remediation. Each chapter evaluates the type of contaminant and site characteristics needed to select a technology for use at hazardous waste sites.
The EPA Environmental Engineering Sourcebook presents EPA documents in an easy-to-use, concise format. It contains numerous graphs, charts and figures that make it an important resource for those involved in environmental protection, site remediation, and site assessment.
"…EPA material (reports, etc.) is difficult to find…the book serves a major purpose in publishing synopses of 28 EPA reports prepared by EPA personnel and EPA consultants. Suffice it to say that the editor selected a wide variety of reports…"

"…clearly written and contains numerous helpful illustrations that make the material accessible to non-engineers…"
