Water Supply. Edition No. 6
Elsevier Science and Technology, July 2009, Pages: 744
Water Supply has been the most comprehensive guide to the design, construction and operation of water supply systems for more than 40 years. The combined experience of its authors make it an unparalleled resource for professionals and students alike.
This new sixth edition has been fully updated to reflect the latest WHO, European, UK and US standards, including the European Water Framework Directive. The structure of the book has been changed to give increased emphasis to environmental aspects of water supply, in particular the critical issue of wastage reduction and conservation of supplies.
