Abstract: The purpose of the annual Conference on environmental engineering is to pursue scientific knowledge and promote sound engineering judgement and practice in the solution of environmental engineering problems. The program is arranged so as to include all areas of environmental engineering as defined by the Environmental Engineering Division. The four major technical committees (Air, Noise and Radiation Management; Solid Waste Management; Water Pollution Management; and Water Supply and Resource Management) aided in defining the current technical areas of interest to the environmental engineering profession. A major theme in this year's conference is the impact that toxic and other hazardous materials have on the environment. The topics covered in the Proceedings include; domestic and industrial wastewater treatment; water quality modeling; groundwater contamination; transport and treatment; sludge dewatering and management; air quality problems; environmental assessments; environmental auditing; infrastructure management; wastewater collection systems; low-level radioactive waste control; energy recovery systems; landfill controls; water treatment technologies; and small system management.

Subject Headings: Environmental issues | Waste management | Water pollution | Resource management | Groundwater management | Groundwater quality |
