Metals and Related Substances in Drinking Water comprises the proceedings of COST Action 637 – METEAU, held in Kristianstad, Sweden, October 13-15, 2010

This book collates the understanding of the various factors which control metals and related substances in drinking water with an aim to minimize environmental impacts.

  • Provides an overview of knowledge on metals and related substances in drinking water.
  • Promotes good practice in controlling metals and related substances in drinking water.
  • Helps to determine the environmental and socio‐economic impacts of control measures through public participation.
  • Introduces the importance of mineral balance in drinking water especially when choosing treatment methods.
  • Shares practitioner experience.

The proceedings of this international conference contain many state-of-the-art presentations by leading researchers from across the world. They are of interest to water sector practitioners, regulators, researchers and engineers.
