Intensive development of tourism and industry in some coastal areas has resulted in increasing pollution of both marine and freshwaters. The main aim of this book is to discuss problems associated with all aspects of water pollution prevention and control in coastal tourist areas. Also covered in some detail is the reuse of treated wastewater, as shortage of freshwater is a problem in some countries which have a large seasonal demand for water through tourism. The papers cover four major topics: treatment and disposal of wastewater from tourist resorts; presentation of case studies for the protection of coastal areas; wastewater reuse; and special problems. Some of the posters presented at the conference are also included. Some of the conclusions of the conference were that a large centralised sewage plant is better than a large number of small ones, that the use of appropriately treated sludge as a soil conditioner should be encouraged and that the reuse of appropriately treated wastewater should be given priority.
