Water and waste management covers the design, building and operation of plants for water treatment and supply, sewerage, wastewater treatment and disposal, and solid waste treatment and disposal.
Since the last edition in 2002 there has been an increasing importance on the issues reflecting climate change.
This is particularly important when the result of this change must be `managed' and `controlled' to maintain an amenity such as water supply.
This new edition includes many new entries on the topics of stormwater management and flood management, as well as the new EU Directives that cover this field. With over 7000 terms, this dictionary encompasses the most recent terminology on water and waste management.
It is a handy reference for consultants, contractors and professional engineers as well as academics and students who need a quick definition to technical terms.
