Viruses and Wastewater Treatment covers the proceedings of the International Symposium on Viruses and Wastewater Treatment. The book presents studies that deal primarily with the virological aspect of water sanitation. The topics covered in the selection include methods for studying virus in waste waters, such as virus recovery from wastewater using microfiberglass filters and rapid detection of enteroviruses in water by a quantitative fluorescent antibody technique. The text also covers topics about post-treatment of waste waters, which includes fate of viruses following land application of sewage sludge and virus survival in wastewater treated soils. The book will be of great use to individuals involved in the research, development, and implementation of water treatment technology.
