Professor Emeritus John Dracup has written a new book, Clean Water for Developing Countries, a guide for determining the best method to provide clean water in developing countries. Taking into account a number of factors including community involvement, water quality and source, and the demand population, Professor Dracup presents the “Multi-Barrier Approach” as a required method to achieving this outcome. Further, the book provides insight on safe transportation of water, sanitation, cultural issues, cost, marketing, and sustainability.
Clean Water for Developing Countries is available in paperback, ebook, and as an unabridged audio download. All proceeds will go to the Rotary Foundation and NGOs working to provide clean water to developing countries.
For over 50 years, Professor Dracup has studied large-scale water resource systems and impacts from climate change. He has conducted clean water projects in Africa, and Central and South America. Professor Dracup is a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Geophysical Union. He lives in Santa Monica, California, with his wife and family.
