The Declining Quality of Life is the theme of the Seventh International Water Quality Symposium to be held April 23–24, 1974, at the Statler Hilton Hotel, Washington, D.C.
The two-day meeting, sponsored by the Water Quality Research Council, will feature concurrent sessions devoted to medical-health problems, water supply, and pollution and the environment. The following questions are among those to be discussed by more than eighty participants: How meaningful are drinking water standards? Does milk cause heart attacks? Is there a threshold for cancer? What can be done about backward utilities? How can commercial users customize water? Can fish and factories live together? What is the geography of death?
