Overview

The book covers the purpose, design, construction and managemnet of sewer systems, as well as their environmental impact. It is structured to provide an overview, engineering principles and analysis for each topic. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest

in the subject as sewer systems designed over a century ago are simply unable to cope with the demands placed on them. The 1990s have seen attention turn to the issue of environmental pollution. The book deals with both the design of new systems, and the upgrading of existing ones.

will be valuable to environmental engineers who are not planning to specialize in urban drainage but need exposure to this particular element of engineering. Easy to read, this book contains both elementary information and interesting problems for upper-division undergraduate students

majoring in civil engineering. - R.P. Carnahan, University of South Florida
