Couverture de l’ouvrage The drinking water handbook
The Drinking Water Handbook is a systematic explanation of the many processes employed to make water safe to drink. It clarifies the laws that set the standards for quality and investigates the physical, chemical and microbiological parameters that must be modified to produce potable and good-tasting water. Careful attention is paid to present and emerging technologies that result in high-quality drinking water: purification, filtration, disinfection, distribution, and more. The book discusses the relation of water reuse to the hydrologic cycle and explains what is being done to mitigate growing concerns about disinfection by-products.
