Abstract

The author in this treatise attempts heroically to discuss very complicated problems of water pollution in a 151-page book in very simple terms without use of chemical or mathematical symbols or equations and without figures, tables of information or pictoral illustrations. It covers a wide variety of topics including water supply, drinking water, domestic and industrial pollution, non-point source pollution, methods of wastewater treatment, lakes, rivers, oceans, economics of pollution control and pertinent environmental laws and regulations. The book was written for the general reader and the material was meant to be useful to students, policymakers, business management and government officials.

The book is written in a very readable fashion. The author frequently employs the conversational style with the use of the first person singular pronoun. With this style he sometimes violates grammatical rules with such as “alage is” and “data is.”
