Water Renovation and Reuse focuses on the general principles and technological developments of water reuse and renovation. This book provides documented case studies of reuse practices and experiences throughout the world.
Organized into two parts encompassing 15 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the different aspects of the problem to conserve, reuse, and recycle the limited water resources. This text proceeds to discuss the initial phase of water renovation and reuse, which is based on the conservationists' concept that society's wastes should be utilized and conserved to preserve the fertility of the soil. Other chapters explore the second phase of water renovation and reuse, which is motivated by the need to conserve and reuse water in arid areas. This book discusses as well the policy of zero pollution in the United States, which led to programs of land disposal.
