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.

Water Supply and Pollution Control, Seventh Edition has been revised and modernized to meet the contemporary needs of civil and environmental engineering students who will be engaged in the design and management of water and wastewater systems, practicing engineers, and those planning to take the examination for licensing as a professional engineer. Warren Viessman, Jr. and Mark J. Hammer emphasize the application of scientific methods to problems associated with the development, movement, and treatment of water and wastewater. Treatment processes are presented in the context of what they can do, rather than compartmentalizing them along clean water or wastewater lines. The concept of total water management, recognizing that all waters are potential sources of supply, is a dominant theme.Improvements in the seventh edition include
