9780442272104: Hazardous Waste Site Remediation: The Engineer's Perspective

Hazardous Waste Site Remediation The Engineer’s Perspective O’Brien & Gere Engineers, Inc. More than twenty thousand hazardous waste disposal sites litter the United States. Cleaning them up requires practical, workable solutions that, until now, books have ignored in favor of abstract theory. Hazardous Waste Site Remediation: The Engineer’s Perspective leaves abstraction behind and gives you effective, concrete clean-up procedures formulated from the authors’ evaluation and restoration of over 100 disposal sites, a number of them on the National Priority List. You get the procedures you need to assess site risk, devise remediation strategies, and use the appropriate clean-up technology. This much-needed guide provides first-time coverage of techniques for conducting feasibility studies, determining site safety, modeling ground-water conditions, biologically treating ground water, and removing underground storage tanks. It shows you exactly how to:

  • design and implement each phase of the clean-up plan
  • apply effective remedial technologies, including secure burial cells, incineration, and chemical fixation
  • fix leaking underground storage tanks, a leading cause of ground water contamination
  • collect and analyze air, water, and soil data to determine the degree of the hazard
Plus you get all the practical details on noninvasive geophysical investigation methods, site safety plan development, site maintenance and monitoring, and much more. Case studies guide you through each clean-up procedure and help you to avoid costly mistakes and delays. With Hazardous Waste Site Remediation: The Engineer’s Perspective in hand, you’ll be able to develop cost-effective solutions that reduce site risks to acceptable levels. This breakthrough reference should be within arm’s reach of plant managers in charge of site remediation, corporate engineers who plan or review remediation work, government officials who regulate site remediation, and students studying this area of environmental concern.
