Book Description

This text series of Water and Wastewater Engineering have been written in a time of mounting urbanisation and industrialisation and resulting stress on water and wastewater systems. Clean and ample sources of water for municipal uses are becoming harder to find and more expensive to develop.

The text is comprehensive and covers all aspects of water supply, water sources, water distribution, sanitary sewerage and urban stormwater drainage. This wide coverage is helpful to engineers in their every day practice.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

USE THIS BOOK ALONG WITH HAESTAD METHODS WATER SOLUTIONS SOFTWARE BY BENTLEY!

Included with this text is access to selected Haestad Methods Water Solutions software by Bentley. The following software modules are discussed in the text:

  • WaterGEMS is used to illustrate the application of various available software programs that can help civil and environmental engineers design and analyze water distribution systems. It is also used by water utility managers as a tool for the efficient operation of distribution systems. See Chapter 7, Water Distribution Systems: Modeling and Computer Applications.
  • SewerCAD is used as a demonstration for the application of modeling and computer techniques in the sanitary sewer design process. See Chapter 15, Sewerage Systems: Modeling and Computer Applications.
  • StormCAD is used as a demonstration for the application of modeling and computer techniques in the stormwater street inlets and storm sewer design process. See Chapter 15, Sewerage Systems: Modeling and Computer Applications.

2Does a poor job, but there is value
By B. Laptalo
Used this book for one semester and didn't enjoy it. The examples in the text are inadequate and a bunch of situations arose where there was not enough data given to solve a problem. The text is well written and I thought the accident stories, although tragic, were a great reinforcement to the material being presented. I feel that this is a great book for those of you that learn well from reading the material; however, for people like me, it is not a great book for those of us who like to practice problems to learn the material. Good luck.

3hey, if you have to buy for class, you might as well.
By Kingsley
I used this for a upper-division wastewater collection and water distribution class and here are my thoughts:

Pros:
-plenty of material (equations) that is useful
-comes with software
-relatively inexpensive

Cons:
-examples are poorly worked out
-chapter problems are terribly hard to work out and may not relate to what is explained in the corresponding chapter
-material is poorly conveyed and chapters are not organized efficiently

5Good source
By eme
The book is very helpful with many tables and lots of informational text on designing requirements and general information for piping systems.
