"This second edition of Remediation Engineering will continue to be the seminal handbook that regulators must have on-hand to address any of the remediation issues they are grappling with daily. The book is wide-ranging, but specific enough to address any environmental remediation challenge."

—Patricia Reyes, Interstate Technology Regulatory Council, Washington, DC, USA

"This book offers the researcher, teacher, practitioner, student, and regulator with state-of-the-art advances in conducting site investigations and remediation for common and emerging contaminants. It is revolutionary in its approach to conducting subsurface investigation, which greatly influences a successful and appropriate response in assessing and addressing environmental risk. This book is a giant leap forward in understanding how contaminates behave and how to reduce risk to acceptable levels in the natural world."

—Daniel T. Rogers, Amsted Industries Incorporated, Chicago, Illinois, USA

"This text is a superb reference and a good tool for learning about state-of-the-art techniques in remediation of soil and groundwater. [It] will become a ready reference at many companies as the engineering community creates increased value from remediation efforts around the world."

—John Waites, AVX Corporation, Fountain Inn, South Carolina, USA


Remediation Engineering was first published in 1996 and quickly became the go-to reference for a relatively young industry, offering the first comprehensive look at the state-of-the-science in treatment technologies of the time and the contaminants they applied to. This fully updated Second Edition will capture the fundamental advancements that have taken place during the last two decades within all the subdisciplines that form the foundation of the remediation engineering platform. It covers the entire spectrum of current technologies that are employed in the industry and also discusses future trends and how practitioners should anticipate and adapt to those needs.


    • Shares the latest paradigms in remediation design approach and contaminant hydrogeology
    • Presents the landscape of new and emerging contaminants
    • Details the current state of the practice for both conventional technologies, such as sparging and venting
    • Examines newer technologies such as dynamic groundwater recirculation and injection-based remedies to address both organic and inorganic contaminants.
    • Describes the advances in site characterization concepts such as smart investigations and digital conceptual site models.
    • Includes all-new color photographs and figures.
