Newsletter and Technical Publications
of Alternative Technologies for Freshwater Augumentation in Africa>
PART B - TECHNOLOGY PROFILES
Technologies for freshwater augmentation are wide and varied making it
impossible for this source book to cover them all. This Source Book
attempts to cover those technologies that are African, traditional and
unique. Periodic reviews of the included technologies will be necessary.
Part B covers these technologies in three sectors: agriculture, domestic
water supply, and mining and industry. Each technology is classified
according to its application within that sector. Four key areas of
application have been used for this classification: water harvesting;
water quality upgrading; water conservation; wastewater recycling and
reuse. Some technologies may be used in more than one sector and this will
be indicated accordingly.
