This new edition of The Drinking Water Handbook is thoroughly revised and updated, and includes a comprehensive discussion of the Flint, Michigan lead contamination event, new coverage of contaminants in water, such as personal care products and pharmaceuticals (PCPP) and endocrine disruptors, and examines the security requirements for waterworks and ancillary procedures. It examines the process of producing drinking water— from sources of water, to the purification process, through distribution systems to the tap, and then to the actual use and reuse of water. It also reflects the latest advancements in treatment technologies and reviews new laws and regulations related to drinking water.
