Overview

Written primarily for undergraduate and graduate students in civil and environmental engineering, this text covers basic engineering principles and practice; but in addition, it covers wider environmental issues of significance to students and professionals involved with the urban environment and public health policy and planning. In their introduction Butler (water engineering, Imperial College, London) and Davies (civil engineering, Coventry U., England) identify which chapters and which portions of chapters will interest the non-engineer readership. Technical topics include system components and layout, sewers, storage, flow models, and operation and maintenance, among others; wider-audience topics include the history of urban drainage engineering and a summary of various approaches, integrated management and control, low-income communities, and sustainability. Examples are drawn largely from British contexts. Spon Press is an imprint of Taylor & Francis. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
