About this book

Engineers and scientists working in the field of water pollution must be familiar with a wide range of issues including the physical processes of mixing and dilution, chemical and biological processes, mathematical modelling, data acquisition and measurement. Available data is scarce and it is therefore essential that there is a continuous exchange of information between specialists from different countries. Bringing together the latest research in this area, this volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Water Pollution. Over fifty papers are included and these cover topics such as: Groundwater and Aquifer Contamination; Wastewater Treatment; Lakes, Rivers and Wetlands; Coastal Areas and Seas; Biological Effects; Organic Contaminants; Agricultural Pollution; Oil Spills; Mathematical and Physical Modelling; and Experimental and Laboratory Work.


Section 1: Groundwater and aquifer contamination Hydrochemical investigations on waste disposal areas of industrial activities at Rio Claro, S?o Paulo, Brazil; The protection of aquifers that are subject to land pollution sources; Pollution vulnerability of the Cerva aquifers; Groundwater pollution in heterogeneous soils; Groundwater risk assessment for a Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) contaminated site; benchmarking and validation of numerical transport models; Geological constraints on the location of industrial waste landfills in Salento karst areas (Southern Italy); Detection of polluted ground water by spontaneous electrical potential; Modeling of groundwater flow and contaminant transport using dual reciprocity BEM. Section 2: Wastewater treatment Integrated management of urban water systems to reuse waste waters; Evaluation of hydraulic conductivity in a phragmites wastewater treatment plant; Feasibility analysis of photocatalytic wastewater treatment; Performance of up-flow anaerobic filter treating wastewater from Saa paper; Characterisation of effluent discharges from edible oil producing industries in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe; Wastewater treatment with gold recovery through adsorption by activated carbon; Experiences with solar application of photocatalytic oxidation for dye removal from a model textile industry wastewater; Effects of polymer conditioning on alum sludge characteristics: a review; The performance of a selector to solve bulking sludge problem in an activated sludge process. Section 3: Lakes, rivers and wetlands River water quality modelling - parameter uncertainty, sensitivity and estimation; Preliminary multivariate analysis of chemical composition of the rivers in Slovenia; Sedimentary records of organochlorine contaminants in Central Chilean Lakes; Use of bacteriophages as a model for assay on removal of stormwater viral pollution in constructed wetland and detention pond systems; Influence of antropogenic pollution of the river Zarafshan on intestinal infection morbidity of the population; Dynamic modeling for purification of eutrophic waters: On buffer zones management in farm communities and its political economy Section 4: Coastal areas and seas Split submarine outfall impact assessment and pollutant transport modelling; Ecological characteristics of seawater in the vicinity of submarine outfalls; Cost-effective versus proportional nutrient load reductions to the Baltic Sea: Spatial impact analysis with a 3D-ecosystem model; Toxicity of contaminated harbour sediment to grey mullet, Liza macrolepis. Section 5: Biological effects Contamination of the Caspian Sea ecosystem with organic pollutants; Studying the bioaccumulation of chemicals in aquatic organisms: PCBs in fish; The effect of environment on the biofilm formation and the production of exopolymers; Potential of the small aquatic plans Azolla and Lemna for nitrogenous compounds removal from wastewater; Characteristic of initial enzyme activity of phenol catabolism in Candida maltosa cells; Characteristics of the productivity structure in the coastal areas along the Kansai International Airport Island, Japan. Section 6: Organic contaminants Phthalate contamination in potable waters of Rio de Janeiro City; Effect of polychaete bioturbation on sediment-water fluxes of pyrene or cadmium; Formation of organochlorine by-products during chlorination of wastewaters containing cyclohexene and butanol; Investigation on organics in the Libyan beach sand and water: extraction, spectroscopy and gas chromatography Bsees to Zuwaitinah coastline. Section 7: Agricultural pollution. Agricultural water reuse: a review; Model system for the management of nitrogen leaching at the scale of river basin and regions. Section 8: Oil spills A statistical approach on oil pollution in Greek Seas; Development of high-effective oil sorbents on the basis of microencapsulation/microgranulation techniques. Section 9: Mathematical and physical modelling Modelling the diffusion of lead into drinking water; An iterative method for the solution of dispersion equation in shallow water; The estimation of vertical eddy diffusivity in estuaries; How to estimate the run duration of a horizontal-flow roughing filter; Simulation models of quantity and quality of water supply - a case study of the Bracan?a West Zone. Section 10: Experimental and laboratory work Measurement of diffusion coefficients of humic substances in a hydrogel and in water by fluorescence correlation spectroscopy; Diffusion in pulverized stone, a potential liner material; Measurement of the surface water reaeration coefficient using Kr as a gas tracer; The Mhlathuze river catchment: Bacterial contamination and antibiotic resistance patterns of the isolates; Measurements of dissolved oxygen in an impounded stratified estuary; Detection of metallic elements in aqueous solutions.
