  • Water and sanitation in urban Malawi: Can they meet the Millennium Development Goals? A study of informal settlements in three cities

    This paper assesses the quality and extent of provision for water and sanitation in urban areas in Malawi – where over 60% of the population lives in informal settlements. It also considers whether the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for water and sanitation are likely to be met in Malawi, and examines the current and potential role of ...

  • Sediment and Contaminant Transport in Surface Waters

    Contaminated bottom sediments and their negative impacts on water quality are a major problem in surface waters throughout the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Even after elimination of the primary contaminant sources, these bottom sediments will be a main source of contaminants for many years to come. In order to ...

  • Water Quality for Ecosystem and Human Health (Second Edition)

    The purpose of the new edition is to introduce the basic concepts of water quality and how it is related to ecosystem and human health; and to present an overview and assessments of current and upcoming global water quality issues with examples from around the world.  It also includes a new chapter highlighting how Ecohydrology can serve to ...
