    overview - Water Pollution - Causes, Effects & Control

    Water Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control is a book providing comprehensive information on the fundamentals and latest developments in the field of water pollution.

    The book is divided into 28 chapters covering almost all the aspect of water pollution including water resources and general properties of water; history of water pollution and legislation; origin, sources and effects of pollutants; bioaccumulation and biomagnification; toxicity testing and interaction of toxicities in combination; water quality standards; biomonitoring of water pollution; bacteriological examination and purification of drinking water; monitoring and control of pollution in lakes, rivers, estuaries and coastal waters; physical and biological structure of aquatic systems; and structure, properties and uses of water.

    Some important topics like eutrophication, organic pollution, oil pollution and thermal pollution have been discussed in detail. The water pollution caused by pesticides, heavy metals, radio nuclides and toxic organics and inorganic along with the water quality problems associated with water-borne pathogens and nuisance algae have also been dealt with extensively.

    The book covers in detail the flow measurement and characterization of waste waters in industries, and control of water pollution by employing various techniques for treatment of biological and nonbiological wastes. The considerations for recycling and utilization of waste waters have also found a place in the book. Special topic has also been given on water pollution scenario and water related policies and programmes in India.

    The book shall be of immediate interest to the students of environmental science, life science and social sciences both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. People from a wide variety of other disciplines like civil, chemical and environmental engineering; pollution control authorities; industries; and practicing engineers, consultants and researchers will also find the book of great interest.
