Prior to his death in 1996, Pat Cashman was the leading British exponent of groundwater control for his generation. For more than 40 years, during the growth of soil mechanics into the practice of geotechnical engineering, Pat was responsible―through the organisations he ran, and later as a consultant―for maintaining a practical and straightforward approach to the art of groundwater control.
Dr. Martin Preene is a highly experienced geotechnical engineer specializing in groundwater engineering and hydrogeology. Martin has more than 25 years of experience working with contractors and consultants on the design and implementation of dewatering and groundwater control systems. He has worked on major engineering projects around the world, including power stations, road and railway tunnels, dry docks, and open-pit mines. He is widely published on dewatering and groundwater engineering, including papers and industry guidance documents. Dr. Preene is currently a principal at Golder Associates in the UK.Review:
'As a practising engineer I feel this book will be extremely useful whenever I encounter any groundwater issues in the future. Any engineer (or contractor) will appreciate the non-technical style of the writing that makes extracting required information from the text easy. I am sure this book will rapidly become dog-eared and regularly borrowed from my office. If you can only have one text on groundwater in your shelf this would be an excellent candidate for the job.' New Zealand Geomechanics News
'I am pleased to recommend this book to all those who have any interest in groundwater control - whether as a practitioner of groundwater control, a design or site engineer involved in construction, or as an environmental manager.' - Journal of the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management
