Dr. Cooper's 35 years of university experience and his award-winning teaching style are evident in this highly readable, authoritative introduction to environmental engineering. Appropriate for all branches of engineering, this text presents fundamental knowledge in a logical, up-to-date manner, incorporating abundant examples with step-by-step solutions to illustrate key concepts. Central to Cooper's treatment is the use of material and energy balances to solve specific environmental engineering problems and to instill a problem-solving mind-set that will benefit readers throughout their careers.
Introduction to Environmental Engineering offers an overview of the profession and reviews the math and science essential to environmental engineering practice. The comprehensive coverage includes water resources, drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, air pollution control, solid and hazardous wastes, energy resources, risk assessment, indoor air quality, and noise pollution.

great introduction textbook
Very good book as an introduction to Environmental Engineering. First edition so there are some minor errors. Also great for water and wastewater treatment operators. I would definitely recommend getting it if you're interested in learning about what Environmental Engineers do. It doesn't read like a textbook. Parts are actually entertaining. Makes for easier learning.
