Book Description

Completely revised and updated, the second edition of the bestselling In Situ Treatment Technology adds three new chapters to provide the reader with an even more comprehensive reference source on remediation.

This authoritative book goes beyond discussion of individual in situ technologies by providing an understanding of the geologic foundation, the strengths and limitations of each of the technologies, and the details necessary to implement them. It also integrates all chapters to show how these technologies fit together to make a particular remediation method simultaneously the best technical and the most cost-effective design.

The latest updates from the EPA and DOD, as well the inclusion of new material, affords you the detailed knowledge necessary to design a full-scale treatment system. New in this edition are sections in three of the chapters that provide the specific calculations necessary to design an actual treatment system. In Situ Treatment Technology, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference source.
