Increasing urbanization and industrialization, however, places high levels of stress on water supply systems. Sanitary and sufficient sources of water for municipal purposes are becoming more difficult to find. New and improved treatment processes are constantly being researched and developed in order to keep up with the growing demand for water. An effective design for drinking water systems relies on an understanding and application of scientific, engineering principles. Environmental engineers employ diverse biological, physical and chemical techniques to extract and treat water from a variety of resources including surface water, groundwater, sea water and rain/snow. Fair, Geyer, and Okun's Water and Wastewater Engineering: Water Engineering: Hydraulics, Distribution and Treatment, Third Edition discusses water quality, quantity and quality issues, problems related to emerging contaminants, water supply infrastructure, and water-quality standards. The book deals with different infrastructural components of municipal water systems, such as collection, purification, transmission, and distribution works. It also discusses the ways in which these systems and treatments supplement one another to produce an adequate water supply, pressure, and purification standard that meets the needs of the population. It features: An organized and logical flow, tracing the connections in the water supply system from the water's source to its eventual use Design of water-supply infrastructure and water treatment processes Useful reference for practicing water engineers who require a more in-depth, higher level description of drinking water systems as well as students in preparation for the FE/PE examinations Examples and homework questions in both SI and US units Fundamentals and practical examples so as to connect theory with the realities of design Lawrence K.
