Groundwater Contamination provides a valuable overview of the key considerations in designing contaminant capture systems. The book's primary focus is on dissolved compounds that contaminate aquifers used for water supplies. It describes useful techniques ranging from simple analytical and graphic solutions to simulation-based optimal design methods. Practical guidelines for complex cases where fully quantitative techniques are not available are also covered. All techniques presented are "on-the-shelf" methods that can be used without further development. The book will appeal to all groundwater scientists, civil engineers, hydrologists, hydrogeologists, and engineering geologists.
