This comprehensive resource provides engineers, managers, compliance specialists, construction professionals, and students with the tool they need to understand and comply with the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 40 Part 122 stormwater regulations. Stormwater Discharge Management covers the full spectrum of stormwater issues, including stormwater regulations, NPDES permitting, minimum control measures, activities-based discharges, overflows, stormwater monitoring, stormwater enforcement strategy, and the new Stormwater Phase II Rule, which mandated compliance March 10, 2003. Readers will learn who meets the criteria for compliance under this rule and how compliance can be achieved in construction activity, agricultural activity, and marine activity. To help simplify the process, the authors identify each and every compliance requirement, from examining the different types of stormwater discharge permits to writing an effective Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPP). They also include actual EPA field enforcement practices and best management practices to help readers ensure compliance success. Readers will gain a clearer appreciation for the stormwater regulations by reviewing the objectives of the Clean Water Act, the purpose and requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and the types of discharges/facilities affected by the laws.
The growing concerns over availability of clean water have been elucidated in this insightful book. Water pollution is a significant problem globally that requires ongoing investigation and revision of water resource policy at all levels - from international level to individual aquifers and wells. It has been implied that it is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases, and that it accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people on a daily basis. In addition to the severe water pollution problems in developing countries, industrialized countries keep struggling with pollution problems as well. Water is commonly referred to as polluted when it is flawed by anthropogenic contaminants and either does not support human usage, such as drinking water, and/or undergoes a marked change in its capability to support its constituent biotic communities, such as fish. Natural phenomena like volcanoes, algae blooms, storms and earthquakes also cause notable changes and shifts in the water quality and the ecological status of water. In course of time, most water pollutants are carried by rivers into the oceans.
This book is the result of a long-term co-operative research and professional development programme between the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE), Mexico, and the University of Salford, UK. It provides the design basis for the fabrication of small and large scale commercial absorption heat pump systems, and includes a comprehensive treatment of the economics of heat pump systems. It charts the development of heat pump technology from theoretical principles to the operation of practical systems for the purification of water, both for human consumption and a wide variety of industrial purposes.
Packed with delightful images and enjoyable activities, this book will keep children busy and entertained. Just wipe clean and the book is ready to be used again and again.
This volume constitutes the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Water Resources and Land-Use Planning that was held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, July 3-14, 1978. In the pre- paration of the two-week NASI, we identified 12 major goals and objectives, knowing well, at the time, that the satisfaction of all priorities would be an impossible task. It is instructive that we share these early goals and objectives with our readers prior to evaluating the NASI's contribution. 1. Relate and analyze water resources (water quantity and quality, surface and groundwater) and related land resources in a multi- objective framework. 2. Identify and relate the scientific, technological, institu- tional, societal, legal and political aspects of water and related land resources to policy decisions. 3. Promote and foster the transfer of technological information and assistance in water related land resources within the var- ious levels of government. 4. Analyze the above three objectives and goals in light of the experience gained by the institute participants via case studies. 5. Improve communication and understanding among the various dis- ciplines involved in water and related land resources. 6. Discuss and analyze the applicability of advanced planning methodologies germane to water and related land resources. 7. Identify current and projected future water and related land resources problems and issues and suggest ways to alleviate their respective and interrelated impacts.
