Selected Water Problems in Islands and Coastal Areas serves as a guideline for implementing, at the policy and decision-making level, the rational and economic use of water resources. This book focuses on groundwater management and the possible utilization of desalination facilities, specifically in arid or semi-arid coastal areas. Organized into five parts encompassing 63 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the forecasts of water supply requirements. This text then explores the necessary regulations of both surface and groundwater in coastal areas and islands with limited water resources. Other chapters consider the curative measures in the case of recurring salination by using artificial or increased natural infiltration. This book discusses as well the techniques to be used for artificial infiltration into aquifers using deep wells to avoid clogging. The final chapter deals with the problems of communal installations, water supply, drainage and waste disposal. This book is a valuable resource for engineers.
