This book brings together and integrates the three principal areas of environmental engineering water, air and solid waste management. It introduces a unique approach by emphasizing the relationship between the principles observed in natural purification processes and those employed in engineered systems. First, the physical, chemical, mathematical and biological principles that define, measure and quantify environmental quality are described. Next, the processes by which nature assimilates waste material are discussed and the natural purification processes that form the basis of engineered systems are detailed. Finally, the engineering principles and practices involved in the design and operation of environmental engineering works are covered at length.
Written in a lucid style and offering abundant illustrations and problems
The book provides a treatment of environmental engineering that can be understood by a wide range of readers.
