Tom Mohr and his various co-authors have put together a very fact-filled and well researched book about solvent stabilizers. This is a must read for anyone working in the groundwater remediation/contamination marketplace. I would highly recommend it!!
I have spent over 19 years in the field of regulating hazardous waste, including landfill closure, enforcement, and contaminated site remediation oversight for the California Department of Toxic Substances Control. I am a licensed civil engineer in California, and have spent the last eight years as a project manager in the site cleanup program. I am currently involved in the investigation of a contaminated property where 1,4-Dioxane is present and have learned a tremendous amount about investigation and remediation of 1,4-D from Tomas Mohr's book.This is a towering reference work on a group of groundwater contaminants that are quite common, but because they are so different from other organic compounds, they have so far eluded substantial regulation or scrutiny. If you are interested in understanding and remediating contaminated soil and groundwater, this reference is unrivaled and indispensable. I cannot recommend this book more highly. If I could, I would give it 10 stars!I checked it out on interlibrary loan from a university library, but had to return it after 6 weeks when it came due. I am coming here to because it is offered at a substantial discount from the publisher's price of $179.00 + tax.
Tom Mohr is an environmental expert in 1,4-dioxane and he has written a book that provides the most comprehensive description of the assessment and remediation of the compound. Although 1,4-dioxane and other solvent stabilizers were originally overlooked by regulatory authorities when examining chlorinated solvent sites, Mr. Mohr was paying attention as regulator for an agency squarely in the center of the industrial solvent spills that occurred in Silicon Valley. He was one of the first regulators to realize there was a new and recalcitrant set of compounds that were not being evaluated or tested for in groundwater. The book reflects his expertise and professional focus on 1,4-dioxane and other solvent stabilizers.
This is exactly what I needed to for work and will use it for reference when needed. Thank you so much!
