Water quality management has in the past been viewed as a purely technical subject, combining primarily water chemistry and hydrology. This book builds on that foundation but takes an interdisciplinary approach to cover such subjects as preservation of biological diversity and ecosystem integrity, insuring public health standards, international waterways and policy, and preservation of water resources through sustainable development. This approach mirrors the issues that confront managers and decision makers. Case studies are used for analysis throughout.
