Over the last century and a half, groundwaters have become contaminated by a growing number of organic and inorganic substances ranging from petroleum-derived hydrocarbons to radioactive compounds, to cancer-causing hexavalent chromium. The importance of uncontaminated groundwater for agriculture, human consumption, and the environmental health of ecosystems is paramount to the health and productivity of industrial society. Water scientists and managers are focused on developing cost-effective methods to reverse this trend.
Several methodologies have been developed, however few are as cost-effective as the use of readily available materials, such as iron and organic compost, for absorbing and isolating contaminants within the matrix of a permeable barrier. The Handbook of Groundwater Remediation using Permeable Reactive Barriers presents readers with this latest technology and developments within four main sections:
1. Innovations in Design, Construction, and Evaluation of PRBs
2. Development of Reactive Materials
3. Evaluations of Chemical and Biological Processes
4. Case Studies of Permeable Reactive Barrier Installations
The Handbook is one of the first references specifically on this topic. It is an excellent fit for graduate students entering this emerging field as well as professionals conducting research or implementing this technology.

A century and a half of mining, waste generation, and nuclear processing has contaminated ground waters around the world. Uncontaminated groundwater for potable water, agriculture and the environmental health of ecosystems is integral to the well being and productivity of our society. National policies are now mandating the development of treatment technologies to remediate substances including petroleum-derived hydrocarbons, radioactive compounds, and carcinogenic pollutants such as hexavalent chromium. Scientists and managers have responded to the challenge by developing remediation methods using permeable reactive barriers. The Handbook of Groundwater Remediation using Permeable Reactive Barriers details new applications of the cost-effective technology to isolate radionuclides, trace metals, and various nutrient contaminate within the matrix of inexpensive permeable barriers.
The editors developed this Handbook as a handy reference for researchers and professionals involved with groundwater remediation. Private sector consultants tasked with projects to clean up groundwater as well as policy makers involved with environmental restoration will enjoy this comprehensive, yet accessible treatment of permeable reactive barrier technology.
