BOOK REVIEW OF "ASSESSMENT AND CONTROL OF NONPOINT SOURCE POLLUTION OF AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS: A PRACTICAL APPROACH"
O'Connor*, T P. BOOK REVIEW OF "ASSESSMENT AND CONTROL OF NONPOINT SOURCE POLLUTION OF AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS: A PRACTICAL APPROACH". WATER ENVIRONMENT AND TECHNOLOGY. Water Environment Federation, Alexandria, VA, 14(6):60.
This book is geared to environmental specialists and planners, heavy on the technical side. It goes beyond tranditional nonpoint source (NPS) approaches which typically only look at stormwater as athe sole NPS pollution driver. There is some overreaching material beyond the context of NPS and its control; however, this material is still sound pollution abatement practice. The book presents a comprehensive assessment of atmospheric deposition as a NPS and also links groundwater as receiver of and contributor to NPS, e.g., through garbage dumps. There is some repetition in the subject matter. This book is volume 23 in the "Man and The Biosphere Series." I found the book to be informative and useful, though some of the material may be extransous to the traditional NPS pollution approach.
