Abstract: The 1980 National Conference on Environmental Engineering was sponsored by the Environmental Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineering in cooperation with Manhattan College, the Environmental Engineering Group of the ASCE Metropolitan Section, the New York Pollution Control Association Inc., and the North Jersey Branch of the ASCE New Jersey Section. The topics outlined by the Environmental Engineering Division and covered in this conference include: the provision of safe, palatable, ample public water supplies; the proper disposal or recycling of wastewater and solid wastes; the adequate drainage and disposal or recycling of urban and rural storm water runoff; the control of surface and subsurface water, soil, and air pollution; the handling and disposal of hazardous wastes; and the social and environmental impacts of technological advances in these areas as well as related public health areas concerned with:(1) provision of adequate sanitation in urban, rural and recreational areas, and (2) elimination of industrial and agricultural health hazards. Futhermore, particular attention has been given in the program to the subject of hazardous wastes due to its current interest on the national level, while noise control was a topic which generated a session based on local interest. In addition, a general evaluation of environmental policy in the areas of sludge disposal and hazardous wastes in the environment is presented.
