About this book

The International Water Conference held in La Jolla, California during 28-30 November 1995 aimed to provide an opportunity for international information exchange on new research applications and timely policy issues effecting the availability, use and quality of water for power generation. Topical areas included: the use of water and the management of chemical quality in process wastewaters; physical and biological transformation due to discharges in open surface waters, watersheds and wetlands; the role of risk and cost-benefit assessments; and discussion of the Clean Water Act containments. The 32 peer-reviewed papers in this issue of the publication of the journal "Water, Air, and Soil Pollution" together present the state of the knowledge regarding the use of water by the electric utility industry.
