Evaluating Water Quality to Prevent Future Disasters, volume 11 in the Separation Science and Technology series, covers various separation methods that can be used to avoid water catastrophes arising from climate change, arsenic, lead, algal bloom, fracking, microplastics, flooding, glyphosphates, triazines, GenX, and oil contamination. This book provides a valuable resource that will help the reader solve their potential water contamination problems and help them develop their own new approaches to monitor water contamination.

Key Features

  • Highlights reasons for potential water catastrophes
  • Provides separation methods for monitoring water contamination
  • Encourages development of new methods for monitoring water contamination


Separations, analytical, environmental, and physical/organic and chemists, academicians, industrial, NGO, and governmental employees. The proposed book will be useful for those who are working in the area of water quality in municipalities, industry or academia. This will involve people working in R&D labs of water industries and graduate students developing methods for monitoring water quality to prevent Flint types of catastrophes. Water suppliers, citizens who are concerned about their water quality, and science teachers
