Main Description
In many countries in the ESCAP region, domestic sewage and industrial effluent are often discharged without adequate treatment into water stream, reservoirs or aquifers. Polluted water sources pose a threat to public health, and are a major source of marine environment pollution. A regional survey identifying prioblems and areas for improvement was carried out, and the finalised report forms part 1 of this publication. Part 2 contains several case studies, and part 3 gives the recommendations approved at the Regional Workshop on Wastewater Management, held in Bangkok, 2-5 November 1999.
