Capitalize on the First All-in-One Guide to Monitoring, Identifying, and Solving Problems of Ageing Water Wells
Water Well Rehabilitation and Reconstruction offers water resource professionals the first comprehensive guide to the mechanical, chemical, and microbiological ageing processes of water wells.
Filled with examples from Germany, the Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, this landmark reference provides the scientific background needed to understand well aging_and perform effective rehabilitation, reconstruction, and monitoring. You will find guidance on state-of-the-art testing and maintenance methods, as well as information on legal and environmental issues, such as the transport, application, and disposal of chemicals. Using SI and U.S. customary units throughout, with a handy conversion table included, Water Well Rehabilitation and Reconstruction enables you to:
Identify and quantify problems affecting well performance
Select rehabilitation methods appropriate for specific problems
Harness methods for replacement or closure of a well if rehabilitation fails
