Summary

Addressing two cornerstone areas in the field of water sustainability, management and technology, this two-volume set provides the most comprehensive coverage of the topic available. It presents best practices as a foundation and stresses emerging technologies and strategies that facilitate water sustainability for future generations. Timely water topics like unconventional oil and gas development, global warming with changing precipitation patterns, integration of water and energy sustainability, and green manufacturing are discussed. The first volume covers strategy and management issues, such as water resource planning, water resource supply systems and use patterns, policy making, and implementation of proper regulations as an integrated part of the solution or approach toward water sustainability. It discusses best management practices for water resource allocation, groundwater protection, and water quality assurance, especially for rural, arid, and underdeveloped regions of the world. The second volume covers cost-effective water treatment and reclamation technologies. Emphasis is placed on emerging nanotechnology, biotechnology, and information technology applications as well as sustainable processes and products to protect the environment and human health, save water and energy, and minimize material use.
