First published in 1958, Salvato′s Environmental Engineering has long been the definitive reference for generations of sanitation and environmental engineers. Approaching its fiftieth year of continual publication in a rapidly changing field, the Sixth Edition has been fully reworked and reorganized into the three separate, succinct volumes to adapt to a more complex and scientifically demanding field with dozens of specializations. This full set includes the following three volumes:
- Environmental Engineering: Water, Wastewater, Soil and Groundwater Treatment and Remediation, 6th Edition
- Environmental Health and Safety for Municipal Infrastructure, Land Use and Planning, and Industry, 6th Edition
- Prevention and Response to Water–, Food–, Soil–, and Air–borne Disease and Illness, 6th Edition
