About this book

Diffusion of suitably treated domestic and industrial wastewaters into marine receiving waters from properly designed and sited marine outfalls is one of the most environmentally safe options for populations near open coastal areas. Scientists and engineers study the oceanography, biology and ecology of receiving water areas to determine impacts and sensitivities and to ensure that the necessary water quality standards and degrees of treatment are met. Experts discussed and exchanged experiences on many aspects of marine disposal of wastewater, from monitoring of contaminants and levels of treatment required, to the scientific developments in measuring equipment and mathematical modelling, to discussing environmental impact, and public relations and perceptions. The best papers presented are published in this volume, providing a useful work on worldwide experience in marine disposal systems.
