Description

Water Conservation and Wastewater Treatment in BRICS Nations: Technologies, Challenges, Strategies, and Policies provides addresses the issues of water resources, including combined sewer system overflows, assessing effects on water quality standards, and protecting surface and sub-surface potable water from the intrusion of saline water due to sea level rise. The chapters incorporate both policies and practical aspects and can serve as base line information for future adaption plans in BRICS nations.

BRICS nations must plan for and evaluate fully the effects of global climate change on aquatic ecosystems, and ecosystem services. Water Conservation and Wastewater Treatment in BRICS Nations details important information for policies makers, water management specialists, BRICS nation undergraduate or university students, teachers, and researchers, especially working in areas of Environment and water management.

Key Features

  • Presents tools and techniques that can be used to preserve water resources, including groundwater and surface water with a unique and informed evaluation of the global issue
  • Provides geophysical methods to quantitatively monitor physical earth processes associated with water resources, such as contaminant transport and ecological and climate change investigations and monitoring
  • Includes desalination techniques, which can solve the issue of scarce drinking water

Readership

Graduate students majoring in environmental science, environmental engineering and civil engineering. Wastewater treatment plant personnel, industrial wastewater treatment professionals, government agency regulators, environmental consultants, and geophysicists
