Urban Water Security: Managing Risks: UNESCO-IHP

Understanding the impacts of urbanization on the urban water cycle and managing the associated health risks demand adequate strategies and measures. Health risks associated with urban water systems and services include the microbiological and chemical contamination of urban waters and outbreak of water-borne diseases, mainly due to poor water and sanitation in urban areas, and the discharge as well as the disposal of inadequately treated, or ...

Water Distribution System Monitoring: A Practical Approach for Evaluating Water Quality

Despite the publication of the Lead and Copper Rule more than ten years ago, compliance is still a major challenge. Due to continuing modifications to the rule, the need for an alternative protocol for obtaining representative water quality samples has been expressed by the drinking water industry. This book explores new procedures and a monitoring device—already in use at several municipal water utilities—that provide higher quality water ...

Turfgrass and Landscape Irrigation Water Quality: Assessment and Management
