This book incorporates basic and advanced information on all topics and issues relevant to the preservation of water resources quality. Its main strength lies in covering all aspects of water quality preservation, including: engineering hydrology, environmental and chemical aspects, quantitative (modeling approaches) and qualitative issues.
