The last edition of this successful book dealt with disposal of wastewater for pollution control. The current edition, Wastewater Treatment for Pollution Control and Reuse has been thoroughly revised and extends the discussion to the many benefits and various methods for reusing wastewater. New chapters on reuse of wastewater and use of physico-chemical treatment methods, including membrane technologies that are critical for reuse, have been added.
Besides the mechanized methods of wastewater treatment the authors have discussed other methods which are not only simple, natural and cost-effective, but also more dependable, especially in developing countries with warm weather. For example, the natural treatment methodsalgal, hyacinth and duckweed ponds, and constructed wetlands which are now gaining worldwide acceptance.
Besides new additions, the existing content has been significantly updated and made more meaningful to present day problems with the coverage of decentralized systems, sludge management, overall design of treatment plants and a thorough discussion of the factors that affect sustainable waste management.
Very importantly, from their vast experience, the authors also describe how to retrofit sanitation in slums and shantytowns and outline methods to clean polluted water courses running through big cities and towns.
