Environmental Science of Drinking Water by Patrick J. Sullivan

Book Description

In today's chemically dependent society, environmental studies demonstrate that drinking water in developed countries contains numerous industrial chemicals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and chemicals from water treatment processes. This poses a real threat. As a result of the ever-expanding list of chemical and biochemical products industry, current drinking water standards that serve to preserve our drinking water quality are grossly out of date. "Environmental Science of Drinking Water" demonstrates why we need to make a fundamental change in our approach toward protecting our drinking water. Factual and circumstantial evidence showing the failure of current drinking water standards to adequately protect human health is presented along with analysis of the extent of pollution in our water resources and drinking water. The authors also present detail of the currently available state-of-the-art technologies which, if fully employed, can move us toward a healthier future. This work: addresses the international problems of outdated standards and the overwhelming onslaught of new contaminants; includes new monitoring data on non-regulated chemicals in water sources and drinking water; and, includes a summary of different bottled waters as well as consumer water purification technologies.
