Abstract: Eighty-nine of the papers presented at the 1981 National Conference on Environmental Engineering are included. The four major areas of focus are: (1) Solid and hazardous wastes; (2) Water pollution management; (3) Water supply and treatment; and (4) Air quality management. Topics of particular emphasis are: fate and treatment of toxic substances; treatment, reclamation and disposal of solid and hazardous wastes; land treatment of domestic and industrial wastewaters and associated issues of groundwater contamination; biological and physico-chemical treatment of wastewater and sludges; removal of THM's and trace organics from drinking water; acid rain effects; and storm water runoff. Sample paper titles include The Process of Siting Hazardous Waste Facilities and Effects of Radiation on Sludge Management. The conference was sponsored by the ASCE Environmental Engineering Division in cooperation with the School of Civil Engineering (Georgia Inst. of Tech), the Environmental Protection Division (Georgia Dept. of Resources) the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region IV), and the Georgia Water and Pollution Control Association. Numerous tables and graphs accompany most articles.
