Since the publication of the first edition of Restoration of Petroleum Hydrocarbon Contaminated Aquifers, the environmental establishment has made significant progress with in-situ remediation and natural attenuation. The new edition broadens the scope of the first and emphasizes the remediation of Non-aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs), Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (DNAPLs), and the growing role of natural attenuation. The second edition features an improved introduction and new sections on site characterization, remediation economics and site closure. And unlike other books on this subject, the new edition offers vital managerial and project management guidance.
