The quality and nature of source water, definitions of safe water, and other requirements such as energy efficiency are constantly changing today. The water treatment engineer must design systems with flexibility to meet changing demands, anticipate future requirements, and keep abreast of advances in the technologies available. The book series highlights advances related to water and wastewater supply, transport, treatment and reuse. The content is intended for engineers designing expansions of existing or new water networks and treatment facilities, planning departments of municipal water authorities, and operating engineers responsible for distribution networks and treatment facilities.
Focus is on sustainable water supply, transport and treatment solutions which address the unprecedented challenges presented by population growth, urbanization, coastal migration and inadequate infrastructure.
