Wastewater Quality Monitoring and Treatment




The issue of water quality monitoring is becoming a huge area as the EU requirements for cleaner water increase. On-line monitoring involves measuring a body of water constantly and in-situ as opposed to analysing samples in the lab. Currently filling the gap in the market, Wastewater Quality Monitoring: On-line Methods provides information on how to produce the best analyses of wastewater in order to meet the above mentioned requirements.

This reference will prove invaluable to all local water companies, industrial companies producing wastewater, as well as environment agencies and researchers.
