  • Nutrient Management: Regulatory Approaches to Protect Water Quality

    Utilities work with regulators to treat wastewater to levels that protect human health and ecosystems.  Water quality criteria and permits are based on scientifically defensible and shared understanding of sources of pollutants in a watershed, as well as treatment capabilities and costs to control these in the aquatic environment.  The national ...

  • Research Digest - Infiltration vs. Surface Water Discharge: Guidance for Stormwater Managers

    Urban stormwater runoff contributes to the degradation of receiving surface waters and groundwater. This degradation is caused both by the increased flows that result from urbanization (i.e., the conversion of land surfaces from being infiltration zones to impervious zones) and by the pollutants (chemical and microbiological) that are carried by ...

  • Sediments Contamination and Sustainable Remediation

    A comprehensive resource on contaminated sediments, this book opens with discussions of the contamination of sediments resulting from discharge of pollutants, excessive nutrients, and other hazardous substances from anthropogenic activities. It examines impacts observed as a result of these discharges, including the presence of hazardous materials ...

  • Salt Intrusion, Tides and Mixing in Multi-Channel Estuaries: PhD: UNESCO-IHE Institute, Delft

    Multi-channel estuaries, such as the Mekong Delta in Vietnam and the Scheldt in the Netherlands, have characteristics of both the river and the sea, forming a unique environment influenced by tidal movements of the sea and freshwater flow of the river. This study addresses a number of knowledge gaps in multi-channel estuaries by developing a ...

  • Water Pollution IX

    The environmental problems caused by the increase of pollutant loads discharged into natural water bodies necessitate setting up a framework for regulation and control. This framework needs to be based on scientific results that relate pollutant discharges with changes in water quality.This volume contains papers presented at the ninth ...

  • Improving Municipal Wastewater Management in Coastal Cities

    In many parts of the world sewage is discharged directly into open water without treatment, threatening productivity and biodiversity of the world’s oceans and causing serious human health problems. In response the UNEP/GPA has developed training for municipal wastewater managers, jointly with the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and ...
