Water Conservation and Wastewater Treatment in BRICS Nations: Technologies, Challenges, Strategies, and Policies addresses 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 book's chapters incorporate both policies and practical aspects and serve as baseline information for future adaption plans in BRICS nations. Users will find detailed important information that is ideal for policymakers, water management specialists, BRICS nation undergraduate or university students, teachers and researchers.
- Presents tools and techniques that can be used to preserve water resources, including groundwater and surface water
- 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
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
