About this book
Making use of information drawn from a variety of sources this book addresses the problems created by all the principal forms of surface water pollution. The chemical, physical and biochemical parameters of water quality, without an appreciation of which no true understanding of river pollution control is possible, are discussed in some detail as are the roles of the variety of micro and other organisms present in natural waters. Self-purification of surface waters is considered in some detail. An up-to-date review of the legislation relating to surface water pollution control both in the UK and the USA is included as is an informative introduction to the potentially confusing subject of water quality modelling. The book provides the student, researcher and scientist interested in river pollution and pollution control with the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the subject available anywhere.
