This book serves as a primary textbook for hazardous waste site investigation and remediation. It provides upper-level undergraduate and graduate students with practical, project-oriented knowledge of how to investigate and clean up a site contaminated with hazardous waste. It introduces concepts and principles of field investigative techniques to adequately determine the extent of contamination in the subsurface for the selection of clean-up alternatives. It then focuses on practical calculations and skills needed to design and operate waste remediation systems that will both educate students and be useful for entry-level professionals in the field.
