A banner edition of the prominent reference covering environmental engineering

Upholding the reputation of its predecessors as the most trusted single-source handbook on the subject, this new edition of Environmental Engineering provides up-to-date, practical guidance on a full range of environmental issues, while delivering the critical material on sanitation management and engineering used by today's leaders in the field. Emphasizing environmental control through practical applications of sanitary science and engineering theories and principles, this Fifth Edition includes new chapters from leading experts, as well as new material by Franklin Agardy; Anthony Wolbarst and Weihsueh Chiu; George Tchobanoglous; Walter Lyon; Glen Nemerow and Laurie Bloomer; John Kieffer; Tim Chinn; Robert Jacko and Tim LaBreche; and Xudong Yang.

Environmental Engineering's highly illustrative coverage addresses environmental control in urban, suburban, and rural settings–including general design, construction, maintenance, and operation details related to plants and structures–with new material on such topics as:

  • Soil and groundwater remediation
  • Radiation exposure and safety
  • Environmental emergencies and preparedness
  • Hazardous waste remediation
  • Incineration
  • Transporting pollutants
  • Communicable and noninfectious diseases
  • Food protection
  • Noise control
  • Water filtration system technology
