Safe drinking water and sanitation are very important for the survival of human life. With the rapid proliferation of industries, growth in population and different forms of pollution, i.e. in water, air, soil and sediments, the living environment and the ecosystem is constantly polluted. In this context, integrating different water resources for enhanced water quality and reuse is important to solve the persisting problems and challenges in developing and the developed nations. Integrated water management offers environmental, economic and social benefits because it aims at maximizing the existing resources and prevents further depletion of the ecosystem.

The 22 chapters in this book cover the following aspects: (i) the performance of different bioreactor configurations for wastewater treatment, (ii) rain water harvesting, (iii) water/wastewater reuse, (iv) the application of mathematical models, neural networks and remote sensing for water quality monitoring, treatment plant performance prediction and water resource management, and (v) the implementation of the water-energy-agriculture concept in practice.

In Focus – a book series that showcases the latest accomplishments in water research. Each book focuses on a specialist area with papers from top experts in the field. It aims to be a vehicle for in-depth understanding and inspire further conversations in the sector.
