This is the second major publication to be produced by the IBA's Environmental Law Committee in the last two years. The revised and edited contributions of leading legal practitioners and academics from Europe, North America and Asia are faithfully reproduced, providing a critical and exploratory assessment of current methods of water quality regulation, transfrontier pollution and liability, land-based sources of water pollution - non point-source pollution and point-source pollution, enforcement of water pollution control regulations, coastal zone management, ground water contamination, and spills and emergency responses. A very valuable case study on the protection of bays and estuaries is included. The high technical quality of the scientific and legal disciplines reflected in this work render it the most up to date and practical book available on the subject.
