<Sourcebook of Alternative Technologies for Freshwater Augumentation in Africa>

4. HOW TO USE THE SOURCE BOOK

This Source Book is a quick reference for water resources managers and planners. Because these users work in specific sectors, the manual is structured by sector. To best use this Book, the sector of interest must be identified, and the relevant field of application selected. For the purposes of this Book, there are three primary (economic) sectors: agriculture, mining and industry, and domestic supply. Within each of these sectors are four applications: water harvesting, upgrading of water quality, wastewater treatment and reuse, and water conservation. A summary spreadsheet is provided for quick reference.

The descriptions of the technologies are not meant to be exhaustive, but, rather, are intended to give an overview of what the technology is all about. Detailed information on each technology can be obtained by referring to the references and sources of information provided at the end of each description.
