    This advanced research-oriented volume on sustainable water management covers the latest advances in water purification, treatment, and resource management. Water shortages, municipal population growth, and urban infrastructure degeneration are affecting water security around the world. This volume discusses a range of important ideas to tackle these issues.

    Subjects covered in this book include a wide spectrum of water supply and demand, water resources management, and operation and maintenance of water distribution systems using innovative technology. This multidisciplinary reference volume reports on sustainability subjects from the perspective of integrated water management.

    The book covers informative chapters ranging from water sustainability to water security and safety. It includes novel smart technologies and their industrial applications. Regional case studies are presented to show how the application of smart water technologies can help improve both water and wastewater services.

    Key features:

    • Presents advances and developments in the areas of water treatment under sustainable development
    • Examines potential issues of understanding of green environmental engineering
    • Presents case studies on sustainable future
    • Presents novel clean technology applications for attaining environmental sustainability
    • Describes relevant experimental techniques

    Sustainable Water Engineering: Smart and Emerging Technologies presents valuable knowledge and guidance for scientists, designers, postgraduate students, researchers, and engineers who are actively involved in water sustainability and are working on water security issues. It is also a comprehensive reference book for practitioners and decision-makers on new advances in sustainable water management.
