Spread of Diseases Associated With Air, Water and Food

Spread of Diseases Associated With Air, Water and Food

Environmental Engineering, sixth edition:
Prevention and Response to Water-,
Food-, Soil-, And Air-Borne Disease and Illness

EDITED BY NELSON L. NEMEROW, FRANKLIN J. AGARDY,
PATRICK SULLIVAN, AND JOSEPH A. SALVATO

The pressure placed on the environment as the global population approaches seven billion people has brought about the proliferation and spread of diseases associated with air, water and food. The pressure of population, especially in urban areas, has placed a great burden on public health agencies in attempting to deal with these problems. Many diseases which were thought to have been eliminated by prior public health efforts have not only rebounded but are often difficult if not impossible to treat.

Recognition must also be given to the fact that developing countries, by definition, do not have the resources to address water treatment and pollution problems to the same degree that more advanced nations, with much larger budgets and technical skills, have accomplished. Where economic and technical constraints limit treatment options, taking care of basic needs and minimum levels of sanitation become the driving force underlying technological implementation.

Increasingly, the world is faced with a new set of challenges to the environment, namely the need to develop plans to address emergencies—in real time. Issues such as hazard analysis, security assessment, emergency training, response logistics and standby medical equipment have taken on new meaning. Increased population densities in urban areas and along coastlines puts many more lives at risk from environmental emergencies and requires increased levels of detail and response, not seen in the past.

These problems can and are being addressed and dealt with and it is hoped that this text will aid in putting the problems into the proper prospective and bring forward solutions which can be implemented.

Doctors Agardy and Sullivan would like to dedicate this sixth edition of Environmental Engineering to Nelson L. Nemerow who passed away in December of 2006. Dr. Nemerow was born on April 16, 1923 and spent most of his productive years as a educator and prolific author. He spent many years teaching at Syracuse University, the University of Miami, North Carolina State, Florida International and Florida Atlantic University. He authored some 25 books dedicated to advancing the art of waste disposal and utilization. His passion was waste minimization and the title of one of his most recent publications, Zero Pollution for Industry summed up over fifty years of teaching and consulting. A devoted husband and father, he divided his time between residences in Florida and Southern California. Nelson served in the United States Merchant Marine during World War Two. His committment to excellence was second to none.
