About this book

The growing problems of wastewater pollution are exacerbated for many developing countries which cannot afford to construct or operate conventional wastewater treatment facilities. It has thus become imperative to develop and popularise low-cost and energy-saving technologies for wastewater treatment. This volume presents a thorough survey of methods of wastewater treatment particularly relevant to developing countries, but of considerable value to a wider audience. The papers are divided into three sections: pond systems and land treatment; anaerobic treatment and other topics.


Section headings and selected papers: Pond Systems and Land Treatment. Introduction to advanced integrated wastewater ponding systems, W J Oswald.
