The U.S. EPA estimates that perchlorate affects the drinking water of over 15 million people. Regulators struggle to define safe limits on intake while water suppliers, industry, and government agencies work to address contamination and to reassure the affected public. Unlike most reference works available that focus on only a few aspects of this contaminant, Perchlorate: Environmental Problems and Solutions offers a comprehensive overview of perchlorate contamination in the environment. This book includes various case studies and provides readers with the necessary fundamental information to understand perchlorate's occurrence, environmental behavior, regulatory status, and remediation.
