Abstract: The 1989 Specialty Conference on Environmental Engineering was held in Austin, Texas on July 10-12, 1989 with cooperation from the University of Texas at Austin Civil Engineering Department Environmental and Water Resources Program and the Continuing Engineering Studies Program of the College of Engineering, the American Academy of Environmental Engineers, and the Texas Section and Austin Branch of ASCE. A total of 29 sessions were conducted, representing over 130 individual presentations. The subject material included all aspects of contemporary environmental engineering practice. Special topics sessions were sponsored by technical committees within the Environmental Engineering Division of ASCE, representing the following subjects: air pollution aspects of hazardous waste management; environmental risk assessment; fate, transport and management of contaminants in ground water; hazardous waste treatment and site cleanup, remediation and closure. Other subjects were indoor radon and radon mitigation in new construction; low level and mixed radioactive disposal; sludge treatment and disposal; solid waste disposal; wastewater treatment and facilities design and operation water quality assessment transport processes and modelling; and water supply point of entry/point of use, quality, distribution and treatment. The wide range of topics covered provides environmental engineers with a comprehensive look at current practice in the field.

Subject Headings: Environmental issues | Water treatment plants | Water supply systems | Hydraulic engineering | Occupational safety | Waste treatment | Water quality
