This report is a critical analysis of formal and informal developments of potential interest to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at the Eighth International Conference on Water Pollution Research held in Sydney, Australia, on October 17-22, 1976. The conference subject matter of particular significance includes transport of pathogens, indicator organisms for viruses, ozone disinfection, environmental hazards of Americium 241 in water, biomonitoring techniques, effects of pH on lime sludges disposed in landfills, uses of scrubber sludges for coagulation/clarification, uses of aerated equalization ponds in reclamation systems, use of magnetized resins in moving bed ion exchangers, sewage pretreatment for ocean disposal, land disposal of wastewater, corrosion protection of sewer lines, transfer of antibiotic resistance from nonpathogenic bacteria to pathogens, survival of enteric viruses and coliforms in sediments around ocean outfalls, and the importance of the wastewater reuse concept. A total of 72 papers are covered.
