Contents Notes
"This handbook presents 10 years of research on contaminants affecting lands and waters within heavily urbanized. It integrates research and professional practice from the fields of environmental geology, geochemistry, risk analysis, hydrology, and urban planning and offers knowledge on improving watershed management practices and urban development. It explains different aspects of urban land and water contamination; including sources, extents, and risks. The text includes case studies on successful and unsuccessful approaches to contaminant remediation, as well as practical methods for environmental risk assessment"-- The watershed approach -- Geology of urban watersheds -- Water and hydrogeology of watersheds -- Conducting subsurface environmental investigations in urban watersheds -- Urban geologic mapping -- Geologic vulnerability -- Common contaminants in urban watersheds -- Contaminant fate and transport -- Metal contamination in urban watersheds -- Contaminant risk factors -- Remediation: techniques and cost -- Urbanization and the disruption of matter and energy flows within watersheds -- Pollution prevention -- Case studies: successful and unsuccessful redevelopment of contaminated sites -- Science-based landscape planning in urban watersheds -- Attaining sustainable urban watersheds.
