Chlorinated Solvent Zone Remediation

Edited by Bernard H. Kueper, Hans F. Stroo, Catherine M. Vogel, and C. Herb Ward

Remediation of chlorinated solvent source zones is difficult, at times controversial, and must be based on state-of-the-art knowledge of the behavior of nonaqueous phase liquids in the subsurface, as well as site specific geology, chemistry, biology, and hydrogeology.
This volume begins with an overview of the current state-of-the-practice that serves as an introduction to the rest of the book. The second chapter summarizes the challenges involved in source zone remediation, while the remainder of the book provides focused discussions of specific aspects of the overall challenge.
Each chapter has been reviewed by two or more experts in each subject area covered. The book is ideal for practitioners, researchers, and students involved in remediation of chlorinated solvent source zones.

Contesting Hidden Waters

By W. Todd Jarvis

The book is unlike others about conflict resolution and negotiations over water resources as it focuses exclusively on conflicts over groundwater and aquifers.
It explores challenges presented by these resources, which are very different than those posed by surface water. Whereas surface watersheds are static, groundwater boundaries are value laden and constantly changing during development.
The book describes various issues surrounding the governance and management of these resources and the various parties involved in conflicts and negotiations over them. Also offered are options for addressing the challenges and issues through a transdisciplinary approach.

Estimating Groundwater Recharge

By Richard W. Healy

The book provides a critical evaluation of the theory and assumptions that underlie methods for estimating rates of groundwater recharge.
The author has been conducting research for the U.S. Geological Society on groundwater recharge, water budgets, and fluid and contaminant transport through soils for more than 30 years.
In this title, he provides detailed explanations of groundwater recharge evaluation methods, allowing readers to apply techniques themselves. Numerous practical examples highlight benefits and limitations of each method as well.

Your Story Publishing

This text tells the life story of Leo Ranney, a man who applied his knowledge of geological engineering in many directions that continue to impact water and energy technology today.
Ranney invented methods for making old oilfields productive again, unlocking heavy oil deposits, and ending water shortages. He invented and refined directional and horizontal drilling, methods that have been used to drill water well systems.
The book features images and an appendices that lists his patents, honors, some of his blueprints, and more.

Introduction to Thermogeology

By David Banks

This book provides a basis for understanding the emerging technology of ground source heating and cooling.
It equips engineers, geologists, architects, planners, and regulators with the fundamental skills needed to implement technologies for space heating and cooling.
The book is geared toward understanding ground source heating and cooling from the ground side (the geological aspects) rather than solely the building aspects.
This second edition is thoroughly updated and expanded to cover new technical developments and now includes end-of-chapter study questions to test the reader's understanding.

Pump System Sizer

This is a digital tool that will help you determine the size of the various components of a typical water pump system.

It is designed as an easy-to-use Excel® workbook and was prepared by contractors for contractors.

When data is entered describing the well parameters and system requirements, the Sizer will calculate the following items: drop pipe length, minimum drop pipe diameter, pipe friction loss, total dynamic head, pump size required, minimum wire sizes and well tank size.

Recently updated in 2012, it is now even more user friendly with more automatically populated fields and expanded pump curves for a wider variety of pump sizes.
