Hatheway Gasworks Book truly is available for
Those of us close to Allen have seen him "sweat" this 1,400-page book
for the past 12 years ... trying to get both arms and one mind "around"
one of the most terrifically complex assemblages of industrial technology,
geologic influences, public health and environmental concerns, remedial
engineering, government regulation and an infinitude of squabbles over
who's going to come forth with the cleanup money.
Allen says that
he wrote the book, so he'd feel better about what he knew about his major
intellectual passion ... and so that other worldwide players in the realm
of coal-tar threats might have a handy reference with which to enhance
their own interests and talents.
Here are the
Title Page and
Table of Contents, as well as the
Foreward, Acknowledgments, Author Bio and Introduction. Finally,
we've also uploaded the entire
Index for the book,
all available for site visitor gratis download.
The Hatheway book on Former
Manufactured Gas Plants is now available for ordering from the
Barnes & Nobel, and from
Other books authored by Dr. Hatheway.
Peer-Reviewed Gasworks Papers, from the 11th International Congress, New
Zealand, Sep, 2010, are herewith posted.

of Manufactured Gas in Australia; Geological-Remedial Implications
The third accepted and peer-reviewed paper was unilaterally removed
from the conference, due to its perceived controversial nature and was
thereby prevented, at the last moment, from appearing in print, in the
Congress Proceedings. It is available here for downloading and
consideration by the world, as the usual Hatheway peer-review body.

Hatheway named to
Prestigious AEG Award
The Association of Environmental and
Engineering Geologists has announced that Professor Hatheway has been chosen as the 2009 recipient of the
CLAIRE P. HOLDREDGE AWARD. According to the AEG web
site "This award, first established in 1962 by the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists, is
named in honor of
Claire P. Holdredge, a founding member and the first President of the
Association. The award is presented for a publication by an AEG Member(s) within the 5
previous years that is adjudged to be an outstanding contribution to the Engineering
Professor Hatheway's award was based upon his 2005
AEG publication entitled
"Perspectives: A Collection of Lessons Learned from a
Career of Intense Practice in Engineering Geology".
publication is fully illustrated and 436 pages in length. It contains 64 articles written by Professor Hatheway.
A second edition is in the works, bringing his article total to an even 100. View

Related Note: Dr. Hatheway delivered three papers on manufactured gas at the 2006
Symposium of the International Association of Engineering Geology, held
at Nottingham Trent University, UK in September 2006. These downloadable
papers are as follows:
Geo-environmental classification of the residuals and wastes of gas manufacturing.
Long-term Fate and Transport Characteristics of
Manufactured Gas Plant Residuals and Wastes.
Technical history of
the town gas plants of the British Isles.
(with Dr. Briget Doyle, College of Charleston).
A discussion of other manufactured gas
technologies that co-existed with mainstream
The role of former manufactured gas plants in the arts.
Dr. Hatheway and Dr.
Doyle continue to assemble a large collection of maps showing the locations of former
manufactured gas plants in all 50 states! This will be a long-term
task so check back often to view the latest maps.
