Groundwater Contamination with Creosote Wastes

Epidemiological Approach to Hazardous Waste Management

Organics in Water — An Engineering Challenge
Efforts should be made to reduce the presence of organic contaminants in water because of their potential for causing cancer, a disease equal in magnitude to the infectious diseases of...

Small Water Systems: Role of Technology
Over 90% of the nation's water supplies serve fewer than 10,000 people, less than 25% of the total population. Many of these small systems have problems. One of the major...

Tropical Disease Bilharzia and Irrigation Systems in Puerto Rico
In many tropical countries the construction of irrigation and hydroelectric systems has caused outbreaks of the parasitic disease, bilharzia, or schistosomiasis, transmitted to man from...

The Greening of the Desert: What Cost to Farmers—
The influence of irrigation schemes on the people who work them is a combination of beneficial effects (provision of water, food and opportunity for economic advancement) and undesirable...

Sanitary Sewers for Developing Countries
To combat disease, we try to ensure water supply purity. Water is only one of many methods of disease transmission, however, and its purity does not alone eliminate the spread of disease....

Aquatic Weeds In Man-Made Lakes: Disease Vectors

Health Considerations in Use of Tertiary Effluents
The nature of the agents involved, their health implications and needed areas of research are considered. There are infectious and toxic agents in wastewater that may well carry over when...

Photodynamic Inactivation of Infectious Agents
The photodynamic inactivation of poliovirus by use of the photoreactive dye methylene blue at pH 10 and monochromatic lights was investigated on a continuous flow basis. The photodynamic...
