9780060468217: Water Supply and Pollution Control

For upper-division undergraduate or beginning graduate courses in civil and environmental engineering.

This bestselling text has been revised and modernized to meet the needs of today's environmental engineering students who will be engaged in the design and management of water and wastewater systems. It emphasizes the application of the scientific method to problems associated with the development, movement, and treatment of water and wastewater. Recognizing that all waters are potential sources of supply, the authors present treatment processes in the context of what they can do, rather than dividing them along clean water or waste water lines. An abundance of examples and homework problems amplify the concepts presented.

From the Back Cover:

The latest edition of this best-selling work continues to offer a state-of-the-art look at modern water management. It emphasizes the application of scientific methods to problems associated with the development, movement, and treatment of water and wastewater. Recognizing that all waters are potential sources of supply, the book's tradition of presenting treatment processes in context of what they can do, rather than in the context of water or wastewater treatment, is becoming more appropriate a s the concept of total water management gains greater acceptance. The sixth edition has been improved with new material added on the EPANET model for analyzing water distribution systems, the processing of sludges, and water reuse. The existing coverage of water use, population projections, urban hydrology, storm drainage system design, and treatment processes has been substantially revised to reflect the latest technologies, engineering practices, and regulations. The authors have included a number of new examples and problems based on actual engineering designs and operations. Computer-oriented solutions are stressed where appropriate. The presentation has been clarified where necessary to make this a valuable text and reference for the civil and environmental engineering student.

FEATURES/BENEFITS

  • Emphasizes the application of scientific methods to problems associated with the development, movement, and treatment process providing a better understanding toward the concept of total waste management, recognizing that all waters are potential sources of supply.
  • New and revised chapters/sections on water supply, water distribution, hydrology of sewer and storm drainage systems, biological treatment processes, processing sludges, and advanced wastewater treatment.
  • More solved examples and end-of-chapter problems have been added allowing students to practice the material before moving on to the next chapter.
  • Introduces EPANET and includes examples and problems developed to demonstrate its use.
