As teacher of an Environmental Engineering course (at Ariel Academic College, Israel) and as consulting engineer, I find the book useful, but... Some areas are weak: Population and demand prognosis, Resource planning, Economic evaluation and optimization, Advanced water treatment (membrane and ion exchange technologies, for example), Desalination of brackish and sea water. Each chapter has a well explained exercise, a very useful feature, but most are non metric. All in all, I know of no better textbook, and it is worth its money.
The book is very easy reading and understandable, but it does not have answers to the work problems which is most important. It has a good balance of theory and applications.
Good reference with chapters covering many topics on Civil PE exam including hydraulics, water and wastewater treatment, water quality, water distribution, pumps, water use and more. I passed, so passing the book onto someone else since I do not use most of the material in the book in my day to day work. I recommend.
Purchased for a client who had a daughter taking Hydrology. This book is good enoughto keep even after the course is over. A more rational easier to read that the more popular Hydrology text.
Good book. Hard to find where I live. And the unbeatable price.
