This textbook provides a comprehensive review of the problems
associated with the supply of drinking water in the developed
world. Since the first edition of this book was published, water
companies and regulators have been presented with numerous new
challenges - global warming has seriously affected water supplies
and water quality; advances in chemical and microbial analysis have
revealed many new contaminants in water that were previously
undetectable; and recent terrorist attacks have demonstrated how
vulnerable water supplies are to contamination or disruption. This
new edition includes an overview of the current and emerging
problems, with potential solutions. It has been completely updated,
and includes the WHO Revised Drinking Water Guidelines. An ideal
textbook for courses in environmental science, hydrology,
environmental health and environmental engineering; it also
provides an authoritative reference for practitioners and
professionals in the water supply industry.
