Key Features

- Covers the scope of water contamination problems on a worldwide scale
- Provides a rich source of methods for analyzing water to assure its safety from natural and deliberate contaminants
- Describes the filter that won the $1 million Grainger prize and thereby highlighting an important approach to remediation

Description

This work provides those involved in water purification research and administration with a comprehensive resource of methods for analyzing water to assure its safety from contaminants, both natural and human caused. The book first provides an overview of major water-related issues in developing and developed countries, followed by a review of issues of sampling for water analysis, regulatory considerations and forensics in water quality and purity investigations. The subsequent chapters cover microbial as well chemical contaminations from inorganic compounds, radionuclides, volatile and semi-volatile compounds, disinfectants, herbicides, and pharmaceuticals, including endocrine disruptors, as well as potential terrorist-related contamination. The last chapter describes the Grainger prize-winning filter that can remove arsenic from water sources and sufficiently protect the health of a large number of people.

Readership

Researchers, regulators and managers involved with water quality and purity, as well as libraries, institutions and corporations involved with water purification.
