This book compiles the essential information on the principal chemical, microbial, and radionuclide characteristics of water contaminants. It provides authoritative information, however, the content is presented in terms that would be understandable to non-experts as well as to professionals. It includes data on traditional and regulated contaminants as well as chemicals of emerging concern, as well as algal toxins and PFOS/PFOA. Each contaminant dossier includes the physical and chemical properties, toxicity, analytical methodology, water treatment technology, US, EU, and other regulatory guidance, including the World Health Organization, Australian, and Canadian guidelines.
