This new 4th edition has been modified to present the fundamental concepts of water quality control in relation to their practical applications. The explanations are concise and the coverage integrated. Although the book is primarily concerned with developed-country technology, the specialized aspects of water supply and sanitation in developing countries are also covered. A separate chapter deals with simple water supply and sanitation systems. Twenty per cent new text emphasizes the new concepts of environmental quality and their practical significance. In response to requests from readers of earlier editions, worked examples and problems are now included making this an ideal textbook for undergraduate courses in civil engineering and environmental sciences or a self-study text for those working for distance-learning qualifications.
