This book covers advances in the design, construction and supervision of large-scale reservoirs, looks at water supply schemes in various countries, and provides a description of flood defence works and river management. All the new techniques and the latest theories in sewage treatment (including activated-sludge processes, reed-bed systems, and incineration) are detailed, with case studies provided to illustrate and clarify the text, and the book also includes the latest developments in computer based programs for the design of wastewater treatment systems. Many environmental issues are covered, and up-to-date matters which affect contract preparation - including recent UK and European legislation - are discussed. A section is devoted to quality control procedures, and the authors draw on their own practical experience in the field to provide advice and information on a number of matters including the consideration of sea-outfalls, new ways of producing cement-based solidified wastes, and a comprehensive assessment of a new type of storm sewage overflow - Storm King.The book covers topics that will interest a varied audience, ranging from academics to professional environmental consultants, "green" pressure groups to local government, and public utilities to regulatory authorities.
