Water Quality 2010 offered a unique forum to discuss the many issues that affect the quality of water, from land management to water treatment processes.

With a changing climate and growing global population, water resources will be under an enormous strain and it is important that water quality is maintained to ensure safe drinking water and water suitable for food production as well as considering the implications for the wider environment. This conference provided an opportunity to discuss current and emerging issues of global water quality relevance.
