Mitigation of geogenic groundwater contamination

Water Resource Quality (WRQ) was an integrated project running from 2006-2012 at Eawag that aimed to develop a generally applicable framework for the mitigation of geogenic contamination in groundwater used for drinking, in particular concerning arsenic and fluoride. We combined natural and social scientific expertise for the solution of a health problem that affects 100s of millions of people worldwide. The mitigation framework developed by the WRQ team from Eawag can help decision makers and water resource managers to identify contaminated regions and to provide feasible options to help reduce the effects of contamination.

Note: because the handbook includes many embedded documents, it is a very large file (42 MB)! Within the next few weeks, we will have a chapter-by-chapter download available. In the meantime, if you would like a version on CD, please contact Annette Johnson or Anja Bretzler.
