"expands the scope of the earlier text by examining all forms of hydrocarbon contamination. These authors are pros having over 60 years experience in the environmental fieldTheir contribution to the profession is the easy to understand language of these highly technical conceptsa homerunWithout compromising clarity, the authors provide a text that can be used by three separate groups of users: new hires, students, and the practicing professionalthis book is cohesive and flows nicely from one chapter to another, hitting on the most important concepts." -James A. Jacobs, President, FAST-TEK Engineering Support Services
