Barlow "Presenting a multifaceted and up-to-date discussion of groundwater engineering, the book explores groundwater production, well hydraulics, well design and construction, groundwater sustainability, biodegradation techniques, the use of geosynthetics, and the design of landfills and evaporative cover systems from an applied perspective. It addresses legal and regulatory aspects as well as environmental concerns such as ecohydrology and the impact of climate change on groundwater. With contributions from an international group of authors drawn from academic institutions, consulting firms, and government agencies, the book is both the most up-to-date and the most authoritative reference available"--BOOK JACKET.
