Description

Supplement to Progress in Water Technology: Discharge of Sewage from Sea Outfalls is a proceeding of an international symposium held at Church House, London on 27 August to 2 September 1974. Said symposium is concerned with the pollution and dangers to health of sewage discharged from sea outfalls.
The book discusses the discharge of sewage from sea outfalls and the problems associated with it according to location: the North Sea, the Mediterranean, the United States, Hong Kong, and the Baltic. Also covered in the book are the effects of pollutants, heavy metals, and microorganisms on the marine environment; how pollutants can be used as an indicator of pollution; and means of the elimination of pollutants. The text is recommended to sanitation engineers, port authorities, marine biologists, and officials concerned with aquatic resources and residential areas along coastlines.
