About this book

The health risk associated with contamination of drinking water is of permanent concern for public and the professional communities. In recent years considerable advances have been made in understanding the problem. This volume reviews selected issues of drinking water quality and treatment written by leading authorities in their respective fields. One of the main features of the volume is its emphasis on the complementary tasks of chemists, biologists, toxicologists, engineers, legislators and politicians in combatting drinking water contamination.
The second part of this volume includes analysis of organic micropollutants, toxicity tests for assessing drinking water quality, the issue of algae toxins, vulnerability of groundwater to contamination from agricultural activities and quality changes due to application of ozone and chlorine dioxide.
