9780442005597: Water Quality: Prevention, Identification, and Management of Diffuse Pollution (Environmental Engineering)

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 of

  • Sources of diffuse pollution
  • Legal definitions
  • The hydrologic nature of diffuse loads, and the processes and land uses contributing to these loads
  • Best management practices that emphasize removal of priority pollutants
  • Use of wetlands
  • The fate of pollutants in receiving waters
  • The restoration of reservoirs, streams, lakes, and watersheds that have been damaged
Extensive 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 how to 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.

From the Back Cover:

Sound, practical advice on managing and controlling diffuse source water pollution and watershed management

This new edition of Water Quality provides the latest tools to prevent and abate diffuse pollution, as well as innovative problem-solving approaches for water and soil resources damaged by diffuse pollution. The information and techniques presented here emphasize sustainability, protection, and restoration of resources, while also considering land-use ethics and socioeconomic aspects of abatement and preservation.

This Second Edition's substantially updated material covers significant advances made in understanding and controlling diffuse pollution, such as key information on atmospheric deposition, pollutant interaction with soils, models for estimating loading of diffuse pollution from land, predicting safe water and soil acceptance of residual pollution, and use of GIS technology. State-of-the-art technical and socioeconomic tools are presented for controlling and abating diffuse pollution in such areas as urban, highway, agricultural, and industrial environments, as well as for managing and restoring streams, lakes, and watersheds. Providing both national and international outlooks, new chapters are included describing the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) process, and material in other chapters is extensively updated to reflect the latest regulatory guidelines and new information on major legal decisions.

Water Quality, Second Edition is a valuable reference for environmental engineers, scientists, civil engineers, students of these disciplines, and government and regulatory personnel.
