There are approximately 50,000 small water supplies in the UK alone, and thousands more Worldwide. Dealing with idiosyncratic characteristics of small water supplies requires specialist knowledge. Small Water Supplies: A Practical Guide provides invaluable guidance for their appropriate management. This book covers how small, independent supplies differ from public water supplies, and the health dangers they pose, along with water sampling and risk assessment. An explanation of different types of supplies including their construction and treatment systems, as well as common problems encountered (incorporating biological and physiochemical parameters such as e-coli, cryptosporidium, aluminium, lead, arsenic, pesticides and radon) is provided. UK and European legislation is discussed, and there is also a sizeable section dealing with small water supplies in developing countries.
