To ask the right question, one needs to have some idea of what the answer might be. So it is with remediation. There is no such thing as too much information when it comes to characterizing a site, as information can aid in selecting the best remediation options. Unfortunately, the collection of data for making an informed decision is often costly, forcing professionals to make decisions on incomplete data. The lack of accurate data can also lead to the wrong remediation method selections, unwanted surprises, and extra expense. Based on the author’s more than 40 years of experience working on environmental projects, Remediation Manual for Contaminated Sites provides a practical guide to environmental remediation and cleanups. It presents a broad overview of the environmental remediation process, distilled into what one needs to know to evaluate a specific challenge or solve a remediation problem. The text offers guidance on tasks that range from managing consultants and contractors to gathering data, selecting a suitable remediation technology, and calculating remediation costs. The book includes remediation strategies for a variety of contaminants and examines a wide range of technologies for the remediation of water and soil, including excavation, wells, drainage, soil venting, vapor stripping, incineration, bioremediation, containment, solidification, vitrification, and phytoremediation. Written as a down-to-earth reference for professionals faced with the challenges of remediating a contaminated site, this book is also useful as a primer for students and those new to the field. It includes numerous figures, photographs, tables, and helpful checklists.

Based on proven investigation into cleanup techniques, the material in this manual gives engineers a working knowledge of the field and a basis for making key decisions during the cleanup process. It is easy to get petroleum into the ground, but hard to get it back out again. The problem does not exist in the groundwater or the soil alone, but in a dynamic balance between the soil, water, and air in the soil. Gasoline and any of its volatile components can and do move between the soil, air and water, and they cost billions of dollars every year in contamination cleanup. This new book provides the information needed for cost- and time-effective petroleum-contaminated site cleanup. Originally developed as an oil company's training aid, this book discusses the hows and whys of site cleanup-geology, data gathering, cleanup alternatives, remediation costs, and manage-ment of consultants/contractors Plus the_book contains a criti-cal examination of the benefits and limitations of each type of remediation technology. There is never only one way to clean up a particular site. The choice of the method of cleanup is one of the greatest factors affecting the cost. Another important cost factor is the level of cleanup required to satisfy the regulatory cleanup community. This new book will not only provide a fundamental under-standing of site remediation techniques but also the knowledge to make cost-effective, environmentally-sound choices during the remediation process. Copies of this handy manual are available for immediate delivery. An order form follows the detailed table of contents on the reverse.

This book provides environmental managers and their supporting technical specialists with a comprehensive strategy for cost-effectively cleaning up soils and groundwater contaminated by petroleum releases. It includes the most recent advances in site investigation techniques, low-cost remedial approaches, and technologies. It uses a "risk-based" process to answer key questions involved in developing a remediation or closure plan for a petroleum spill site. Several approaches are described that include risk management methods which use institutional controls to isolate contaminants from human contact and long-term monitoring to verify that natural attenuation is reducing future risk. More traditional risk evaluations and simplified RBCA methods are also presented that use site-specific exposure assumptions to develop risk-based cleanup objectives. Case studies illustrate how various combinations of land-use control, site-specific risk analysis, natural attenuation, and focused source reduction technologies have been used to obtain risk-based closures at sites across the United States.
