Originally published in 1978, this volume addresses the scientific, economic, and administrative aspects of the public policy problem raised by the United States’ Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974. In this collection of papers, the authors examine the various problems presented by drinking public water in the United States, the United Kingdom, and throughout Europe. This is an ideal title for students interested in environmental studies and public policy reform.
