  • Land Subsidence Mitigation

    Aquifer Recharge Using Treated Wastewater Injection

    By Frank R. Spellman

    This book examines the process of injecting treated wastewater into wells to replenish aquifers, and thereby slow the process of land subsidence, and help to mitigate coastal flooding. It explains how up to fifty percent of sea-level rise may be due to land subsidence, and up to fifty percent of…
