Description Water Quality de Vladimir Novotny:

Subsurface migration, fertilizer runoff from farms, storm water from streets, and other forms of diffuse pollution are now recognized as having serious environmental consequences. In more than 50 percent of estimated cases in which water quality goals are not achieved, diffuse pollution is cited as the main cause. This guide surveys the myriad problems and challenges presented by this form of pollution, and offers a wide range of feasible, cost-effective solutions for dealing with them. Water Quality: Prevention, Identification, and Management of Diffuse Pollution covers aspects of diffuse pollution ranging from sources and sites to health and legal consequences. It provides readers with valuable discussions ofSources of diffuse pollutionLegal definitionsThe hydrologic nature of diffuse loads, and the processes and land uses contributing to these loadsBest management practices that emphasize removal of priority pollutantsUse of wetlandsThe fate of pollutants in receiving watersThe restoration of reservoirs, streams, lakes, and watersheds that have been damagedExtensive data are provided on nontoxic as well as toxic pollutants, including new toxic compounds. The authors provide an integrated approach to water quality control and explain advanced pollution abatement technologies, such as the use of wetlands. Sections on repercussions to the economy include discussions of cost/benefit analyses of abatement programs and the payments that support the programs. Throughout, real-world examples illustrate practical applications of various control, abatement, and remediation strategies. Readers discover how to use modeling techniques to pinpoint the effects of diffuse pollution, as well as howto plan environmental protection and recovery. Other areas investigated are erosion, soil pollution, industrial diffuse pollution management, and the use of aquacultures in wetland management. The book offers solutions to a serious pollution problem-- making it required reading for environmental and agricultural engineers, planners, regulatory professionals, and remediation specialists. It will also be a useful source for graduate students in environmental engineering and science.

Dr. Novotny has chaired and organized several important conferences in the field of pollution control. He is also a chairman of the international specialists' group within the International Association on Water Quality that deals with diffuse pollution. He has written or co-written numerous books and papers, including Handbook of Nonpoint Pollution: Sources and Management. He holds a Ph.D. in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee. HARVEY OLEM is director of the Center for Watershed Protection and president of Olem Associates. He earned a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering and an M.Sc. in Environmental Pollution Control from Pennsylvania State University. He is the author of Liming Acidic Surface Waters and numerous articles and reports.
