Water resource quality is a complex area: practitioners must first identify and assess, and then recommend steps to actually control pollution from many different sources, some easy to locate (point sources, eg factories) and some quite difficult (non-point or diffuse sources) Water resources professionals need sound practical advice on what to look for, what tools are best to use, what the regulations are, and what recommendations to make concerning management and control of non-point source water pollution. This revised edition provides up-to-date material reflecting the huge advances made, since the original edition was published, in understanding atmospheric deposition, pollutant interaction with soils, and modelling and monitoring using GIS systems.
