Merchandise Description
Wood remains one of our most important renewable construction materials, but most wood must be supplementally protected with chemicals to perform under exterior applications. This is especially true when the material is used in or over water. The chemicals used to provide this protection have come under increasing regulatory and public scrutiny, but there are few comprehensive reports on the potential impacts of using preservative-treated wood in aquatic environments. This book was designed to inform the reader about the reasons for wood preservation, the chemicals and methods used, and the potential for migration of these chemicals into the surrounding environment. It is intended as a resource for those who treat, specify, regulate, and use treated wood.
