First published in 1987, Constructive Drinking is a series of original case studies organized into three sections based on three major functions of drinking. The three constructive functions are: that drinking has a real social role in everyday life; that drinking can be used to construct an ideal world; and that drinking is a significant economic activity. The case studies deal with a variety of exotic drinks

This brand new manual was written because of the increased use of chloramine as a residual disinfectant in drinking water distribution systems and the ubiquitous presence of nitrifying bacteria in the environment. Chapters cover background information on the occurrence and microbiology of nitrification in various water environments and provide current practical approaches to nitrification prevention and response. This manual provides a compendium of the current state-of-the-art knowledge, however with quickly developing new advances in nitrification, more writings will be forthcoming. Each chapter can be read independently.

Prepared by the Water Supply Engineering Technical Committee of the Infrastructure Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. This report provides a comprehensive survey of the state of the art in drinking water treatment methods and technologies for controlling microorganisms. Academics, practicing engineers, and environmental scientists offer insight into the risks posed by microbes in drinking water and ,more importantly, their control through treatment and disinfection. The report supplies an overview of the subject for nonspecialists and becomes a valuable technical reference for experienced practitioners. Topics include: Ørisks posed by pathogens in drinking water; Ømicrobially-mediated corrosion and water quality deterioration; Øindicator concept and its application in water supply; Øremoval of organisms by flocculation/sedimentation; Øair stripping and aeration; Øslow sand filtration; Ørapid sand filtration; Øgranular activated carbon/biological activated carbon; Øcontrol of microorganisms in drinking water by pressure-driven membrane processes; Øgeneral kinetics of disinfection processes; Øchlorine and chloramines; Øchlorine dioxide in drinking water treatment; Øultraviolet disinfection; Øozone disinfection in drinking water; and Øemerging pathogens of concern in drinking water.

With the many treatment and water quality problems associated with algae, this study presents its findings on: coagulation conditions, the utility of on-line in-vivo fluorescence, dissolved oxygen and pH measurements; effectiveness of conventional treatment; and effects of potassium permanganate preoxidatiion. Recommendations and treatment strategies are presented as well.

Scientific research has clearly established that drinking in moderation has many health benefits, including maintaining a healthy heart. Yet, many people do not know that drinking red wine protects the heart more than white wine, while beer, margaritas, and hard liquor are less effective in providing such protection. And while alcoholism is a serious problem requiring medical and psychological treatment, for those who are not addicted, drinking alcohol is not necessarily a bad habit. The problem is to distinguish between drinking sensibly and drinking insensibly. Dasgupta clearly outlines what constitutes healthy drinking and its attendant health benefits, offers advice on how to drink responsibly, and provides insight into just how alcohol works on the brain and the body. After reading this book, readers will enjoy their next drink with a fuller and safer understanding of why they're enjoying it.

This is the third edition of the WHO's guidelines which are used by countries worldwide to set standards for the regulation of drinking water quality and effective approaches to water safety management. This revised edition has been updated to take account of recent developments in risk assessment and management. Topics discussed include: a framework for drinking water safety and discussion of the roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders, such as national regulators, water suppliers and independent surveillance agencies; guidance on microbial safety of drinking water through safety plans; new scientific information on chemicals, waterborne pathogens and individual chemical hazards of actual or potential concern. It also considers the application of the guidelines in specific circumstances, such as in emergencies and disasters, and to specific applications, such as bottled water. It also contains information on over 130 documents which substantiate or explain the content of the Guidelines, and on good practice guidance in achieving drinking-water safety.

Over the last decades quite a few studies have been devoted to drinking. Most of these were concerned with alcohol and written by social anthropologists. This book presents multidisciplinary aspects of the ingestion of liquids at large, addressing many of the overt and covert meanings of drinking: from satisfying biological needs to communicating with humans and the hereafter, attempting to reach a differential emotional state or seeking good health and longevity through the ingestion of appropriate beverages. It includes papers from both biological and social scientists and covers a fair range of societies from rural and urban environments, and in continents and countries ranging from Europe, Africa, and Latin America to Malaysia and the Pacific.
