About this book

The book is a compilation of the papers presented in the International Conference on Emerging Trends in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering (ETWREE 2017). The high quality papers are written by research scholars and academicians of prestigious institutes across India. The book discusses the challenges of water management due to misuse or abuse of water resources and the ever mounting challenges on use, reuse and conservation of water. It also discusses issues of water resources such as water quantity, quality, management and planning for the benefits of water resource scientists, faculties, policy makers, stake holders working in the water resources planning and management. The research content discussed in the book will be helpful for engineers to solve practical day to day problems related to water and environmental engineering.
