The first edition of the Dictionary of Waste and Water Treatment was published in 1981 and was aimed at treatment and treatment design. Over the last 20 years, areas such as air pollution control, solid waste management, hazardous waste management, pipeline management (leakage control, pipeline and sewer renewal) and environmental management systems have all become increasingly important. To reflect this shift, this completely revised and updated edition now covers water and waste management as well as treatment.

The dictionary contains definitions of around 7000 terms used in:

Water resources and hydrology Drinking water quality Waterborne diseases Public Health Water treatment Wastewater treatment Sludge treatment Air pollution & air pollution control Solid Waste Management Hazardous Waste Management Pipeline Management (leakage control, pipeline & sewer renewal) Environmental Management systems (ISO 14000, EMAS)

The dictionary has been completely revised and updated to encompass all the changes of the last 20 years to become the most comprehensive dictionary of water and waste management available.
