Water Technology: An Introduction for Environmental Scientists and Engineers

Water science and technology is one of the world's largest and most interdisciplinary industries, employing chemists, microbiologists, botanists, zoologists as well as engineers, computer specialists and a range of different management professionals. This accessible student textbook covers the key concepts of water science and technology by explaining the fundamentals of water quality and regulation, policy and management, hydrobiology, water treatment and drinking water supply, and wastewater treatment. The Water Framework Directive is the unifying theme for this new edition. Deals with water quality assessment, management and treatment Includes a new chapter on sustainability within water technology This textbook is intended for Masters students (and some undergrads) on environmental science, engineering courses, construction courses and students registered for the CIWEM Diploma (Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management). It will also be useful for professionals working in the water industry: water service companies, environmental regulators, and consultants.
