A new publication of selected papers is available from the 14h International Conference of the IWA Diffuse Pollution Specialist Group (DIPCON 2010) held in September 12-17, 2010, Beaupré, Québec, Canada.
This book entitled “Issues and Solutions to Diffuse Pollution” includes 17 keynote papers and 33 session papers selected by the Editorial Committee on the basis of their relevance and scientific merit, as well as the fact that they reflect the international scope of the issue.
Because of the fast-growing knowledge base on identification, fate and management of diffuse pollution, the objective of the DIPCON 2010 conference was to discuss the most recent research findings and information and for the 220 participants from 36 countries to learn and network about Diffuse Pollution and Eutrophication. The DIPCON conferences are a unique venue for these types of interactions as they are attended by a variety of specialists from academic, institutional and consultant organizations from around the world.
Although many diffuse pollution aspects were presented and discussed at the DIPCON 2010 conference, this OECD sponsored book focuses on five topics: 1. Watershed management to reduce diffuse pollution; 2. Managing nutrients in freshwater systems; 3. Policy and economics to manage diffuse pollution; 4. Emerging contaminants and micropollutants; 5. Modelling, monitoring and analytical methods.
