Regulating Toxic Substances in Surface Water offers a critical examination of the mechanisms used to control, reduce, and eliminate toxic substances and their impacts on aquatic ecosystems and on human health. The book explains how surface water criteria for toxic substances are developed and how criteria are used to control sources of toxic pollutants to surface waters. The book examines the many science-policy decisions that are made during implementation of the Clean Water Act and explores several areas of surface water impairment that have not been addressed by existing regulatory mechanisms. Practical outcomes of decisions as they are implemented on state and federal levels are covered as well. Regulating Toxic Substances in Surface Water will be useful for federal and state water quality regulators, municipal wastewater treatment plant managers, managers of industries that discharge toxic substances to surface waters, environmental consultants, and others interested in the topic.
