Sustainable Water Resource Handbook
Alive2green publishes the Sustainable Water Resource Handbook which is available for purchase.
Packed with contributions from South Africa’s leading industry experts and researchers, The Sustainable Water Resource Handbook provides readers with practical insights into sustainable water resource designs, technologies, materials and solutions relevant in the South African context. The Sustainable Water Resource Handbook is a Peer Reviewed publication and forms the basis of the learning material for our soon to be launched Online Education Courses.
Alive2green is in the process of compiling The Sustainable Water Resource Handbook Volume 4.
The Sustainable Water Resource Handbook Volume 3 has been compiled and distributed.
Alive2green announced the arrival of Volume 2 of the Sustainable Water Resource Handbook in time for an early 2011 distribution to between 8000 and 15 000 readers. Volume 2 of the Handbook is peer-reviewed and authors’ submissions were reviewed for academic publication by a panel consisting of some of South Africa’s top researchers and sector experts.
Alive2green was pleased to have Dr. Bill Harding as the editor, who has compiled a series of chapter titles centered on the theme of South African dams, eutrophication and related matters. The central theme is nutrient pollution arising from wastewater – and why we are not doing something about this as has been the norm in so many other countries. Dr. Harding has tried to include engineering and institutional opinions (George and Mark), as well as options for researchers who have recently been involved with P-free detergent surveys and EDC work to indicate how viable these options may be (Chris and Nicola).

South Africa’s first Sustainable Water Resource Handbook was launched early in 2010 and by all accounts Volume 1 has served to provide local water sector stakeholders with an effective reference tool that contains articles written by leading authors and experts in their respective sectors. Chapters ranged from climate, rainfall, groundwater and water management to wastewater, sanitation and agricultural water to name a few. More than 7000 copies are already in circulation.
