The Biological Wastewater Treatment series is based on the book Biological Wastewater Treatment in Warm Climate Regions and on a highly acclaimed set of best selling textbooks. This international version is comprised by six textbooks giving a state-of-the-art presentation of the science and technology of biological wastewater treatment. This is the richest ground water province of the country. The bhabar, tarai and the axial belts are well defined. The streams disappearing in the unassorted materials of the bhabar zone seep out in the tarai belt. Moreover, the ground water table is also high.
