Based on the classic text by Fair, Greyer, and Okun, this new edition is updated to include eight new chapters by university professors and practicing engineers. It reflects current practice, provides access to an academic version of Bentley's Haestad Methods Water Solutions software, and includes homework problems.
In this age of mounting urbanization and industrialization, water and wastewater systems are stressed. Clean and ample sources of water for municipal uses are becoming harder to find and more expensive to develop. In order to create effective designs and efficient operations, engineers need a fuller understanding and application of scientific principles. The results of scientific research are being incorporated with success in new designs using both U.S. and SI systems equations, examples, and problems, as well as new operating procedures.
This third edition grounds readers in both the science and art of water and wastewater engineering that global engineers need to service their customers and communities.
