Principles of Environmental Engineeringis intended for a course in introductory environmental engineering for sophomore- or junior-level students. This text provides a background in fundamental science and engineering principles of environmental engineering for students who may or may not become environmental engineers. Principles places more emphasis on scientific principles, ethics, and safety, and focuses less on engineering design. The text exposes students to a broad range of environmental topics―including risk management, water quality an treatment, air pollution, hazardous waste, solid waste, and ionizing radiation as well as discussion of relevant regulations and practices. The book also uses mass and energy balance as a tool for understanding environmental processes and solving environmental engineering problems. This new edition includes an optional chapter on Biology as well as a thorough updating of environmental standards and a discussion of how those standards are created.

By Jayson R.
Very in-depth content although some of the problems have errors in the expected answers which will pose a problem if you try to solve them the same way shown in this book, but overall the questions are high quality with not only basic questions to allow the reader to grasp basic understanding but also complex problems requiring you to take into account all variables taught.

Easy to read
Easy to read, but practice problems are sloppy. Units are missing or don't make sense. Also 1/2 the answers to problems are not correct and as a student this is very frustrating because I will spend time trying to figure out what I did wrong when really the book is wrong.

Same as US edition
This book had exactly the same content and chapter problems as the US edition. However, the page numbers differed slightly.
