Overview

"This second edition of Urban Drainage deals comprehensively not only with the design of new systems, but also analysis and upgrading of existing infrastructure, and environmental issues." "Each chapter contains a descriptive overview of the complex issues involved, the basic engineering principles, and analysis for each topic. Extensive examples are used to support and demonstrate the key issues explained in the text. Problems are included at the end of each chapter, and an associated website contains solutions and useful links." Urban Drainage is an essential text for undergraduate and postgraduate students, lecturers and researchers in water engineering, environmental engineering, public health engineering and engineering hydrology. It is a useful reference for drainage design and operation engineers in the water industry and local authorities, and for consulting engineers. It will also be of interest to students, researchers and practitioners in environmental science and technology, policy and planning and geography and public health.
