Wastewater Irrigation and Health Book Review:

In many countries wastewater treatment systems are hardly functioning or have a very low coverage, resulting in very poor quality water being used for irrigation and the cultivation of consumable produce. This can create significant risks to public health, particularly in expanding urban areas. Wastewater Irrigation and Health approaches this serious problem from a practical and realistic perspective, addressing the issues of health risk assessment and reduction in developing country settings. The book therefore complements other books on the topic of wastewater which tend to target high-end treatment options or merely report that wastewater irrigation is a common phenomenon. The editors of Wastewater Irrigation and Health move the focus onto quantifying risk in order to reduce it. It presents the state-of-the-art on low-cost options for health risk reduction in line with the multiple barrier approach of the 2006 guidelines published by the World Health Organization. The authorship includes a mix of agronomists and engineers who have been working closely with social scientists and health experts, from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. The chapters highlight experiences across the developing world with case studies from different parts of sub-Saharan Africa (Ghana, Dakar, Mauritania, South Africa), Asia (India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Bangladesh), Mexico and MENA (Jordan, Tunisia). The book thus clearly establishes a connection between agriculture and sanitation, which is often the missing link in the current discussion on resource recovery.

Hazardous Pollutants in Biological Treatment Systems Book Review:

Hazardous pollutants are a growing concern in treatment engineering. In the past, biological treatment was mainly used for the removal of bulk organic matter and the nutrients nitrogen and phosphorous. However, relatively recently the issue of hazardous pollutants, which are present at very low concentrations in wastewaters and waters but are very harmful to both ecosystems and humans, is becoming increasingly important. Today, treatment of hazardous pollutants in the water environment becomes a challenge as the water quality standards become stricter. Hazardous Pollutants in Biological Treatment Systems focuses entirely on hazardous pollutants in biological treatment and gives an elaborate insight into their fate and effects during biological treatment of wastewater and water. Currently, in commercial and industrial products and processes, thousands of chemicals are used that reach water. Many of those chemicals are carcinogens, mutagens, endocrine disruptors and toxicants. Therefore, water containing hazardous pollutants should be treated before discharged to the environment or consumed by humans. This book first addresses the characteristics, occurrence and origin of hazardous organic and inorganic pollutants. Then, it concentrates on the fate and effects of these pollutants in biological wastewater and drinking water treatment units. It also provides details about analysis of hazardous pollutants, experimental methodologies, computational tools used to assist experiments, evaluation of experimental data and examination of microbial ecology by molecular microbiology and genetic tools. Hazardous Pollutants in Biological Treatment Systems is an essential resource to the researcher or the practitioner who is already involved with hazardous pollutants and biological processes or intending to do so. The text will also be useful for professionals working in the field of water and wastewater treatment.

Effects of Natural and Anthropogenic Drivers on Emerging Organic Contaminants in Wastewater and Drinking Water Systems Book Review:

Indirect potable water reuse is considered an effective management practice for augmenting declining water resources. However, the occurrence of emerging organic contaminants (EOCs) such as prescription and non-prescription drugs, health and beauty products, among others in wastewater effluent challenges reuse practices due to the underlying risk to aquatic ecosystem health and potential human health impacts. It is important therefore to understand the fate, transport and risks of EOCs in surface and groundwater drinking water sources that are impacted by various indirect potable reuse practices. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the occurrence and removal of selected EOCs during wastewater treatment, assess their fate, transport and risks in impacted surface and groundwater sources, and evaluate their removal during conventional drinking water treatment. While land application of wastewater effluent is beneficial for recharging groundwater aquifers and avoiding direct pollutant discharges to surface waters, it provides a pathway of EOCs that persist in wastewater effluent to underlying aquifers. The extent to which effluent irrigation activities at the Penn State Living Filter has impacted groundwater was investigated. Commonly used pharmaceuticals (acetaminophen, ampicillin, caffeine, naproxen, ofloxacin, sulfamethoxazole, and trimethoprim) were targeted for analysis in wastewater influent, effluent and monitoring wells at the spray irrigation site. In wastewater influent, acetaminophen and trimethoprim were the most frequently detected (93%) above the limit of quantification (LOQ), while in the effluent, caffeine and trimethoprim were detected most frequently (70%). Acetaminophen and caffeine were generally well removed (>88%) during wastewater treatment while other compounds including antibiotics and the anti-inflammatory drug naproxen were removed to a lesser extent and in some cases, were present at higher concentrations in effluent samples. The removal efficiencies of the pharmaceuticals varied seasonally with the least removals recorded in colder months. The impact of long-term wastewater irrigation on groundwater was observed through the presence of studied compounds at levels above the LOQ. Detection frequencies were however lower in groundwater samples compared to the effluent, with sulfamethoxazole (40%) and caffeine (32%) as the most frequently detected compounds. Similarly, average concentrations of pharmaceuticals in groundwater were nearly two orders of magnitude lower than concentrations in the effluent. Effluent irrigation performs an ecosystem service by mitigating an ecosystem risk to aquatic organisms as wastewater effluent posing medium to high risk to aquatic systems is not discharged directly in streams but allowed to infiltrate through the soil and decrease in concentration before recharging groundwater. Furthermore, human health risk assessments indicate that concentrations of studied EOCs in groundwater, which is used as a drinking water source, appear to pose minimal risk.Domestic drinking water wells are common in the U.S. and serve about 1 million homes and farms in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. These private wells are often located in areas served by onsite wastewater treatment systems such as septic systems where treated domestic wastewater effluent is discharged in subsurface leach fields for further treatment before recharging groundwater. The occurrence, range of concentrations, and potential human health risks of seven pharmaceutical compounds (acetaminophen, ampicillin, caffeine, naproxen, ofloxacin, sulfamethoxazole, and trimethoprim) in 26 private wells located in central PA were evaluated. Ofloxacin (100%) and sulfamethoxazole (58%) were the most frequently detected compounds while naproxen was not detected in any sample and other pharmaceuticals were present in

Green Practices and Strategies in Supply Chain Management Book Review:

We look at green supply chain management from the vantage point of the triple bottom line: environmental, economic, and social. There are many sustainability decisions that can be made on which we have an incredible impact. Usually, managers have the opportunity to make decisions in five areas of the supply chain: plan, source, make, deliver, and return. Nowadays, consumers care more about where and how the products are produced and delivered, what they are made of, and who made them. Regulatory bodies are continuously creating pressure on firms to adopt eco-friendly practices in their businesses for better environmental sustainability. As a result, firms have just two choices: to adopt green and/or eco-friendly practices in their supply chain operations to fulfill their customers' and regulatory bodies' requirement or not to adopt green practices and lose their business position and potential customers.
