The Aqualine database provides comprehensive focus on trade, technical and scientific literature concerning all aspects of water resources. Major subjects of coverage include water resources and supplies management, water legislation, water quality, potable water distribution, wastewater collection, water treatment technologies, wastewater and sewage treatment, and ecological and environmental effects of water pollution. Articles on these topics are drawn from a source list of approximately 300 journals as well as from conference proceedings, scientific reports, books and theses. Each entry includes bibliographic citation, abstract, geographic index terms and subject index terms. Beginning June 2004, Aqualine is being indexed with the Water Resources Thesaurus. Some terms from the controlled vocabulary of Aqualine were added to the Water Resources Thesaurus. The thesaurus is available as an online search tool. Previously published by the well-known and respected WRc in England, Aqualine is now produced in joint cooperation with WRc and ProQuest CSA.

    AB: Abstract
    The European Unions Water Framework Directive (WFD) calls for an integrated management of waters on the basis of river basins. To comply with these requirements, a comprehensive analysis of the ecological and water management status of the respective river basins must be carried out first. The dischange and treatment of wastewaters play an important role in this respect, because the quality of the receiving waters is determined to a large extent by the way in which water management is organised and by the quality of wastewater treatment. The paper describes the sewage engineering and water management activities carried out in the catchment area of the Pleisse River to illustrate how potential conflicts can be identified and contained in the interest of water pollution control and the users of the waters. A good ecological status can be achieved if the sewage engineering measures according the article 10 of the WFD can be successfully integrated into the overall context of river basin management.
