The latest edition of this bestselling work continues to offer a state-of-the-art look at modern water management. It emphasizes the application of scientific methods to problems associated with the development, movement, and treatment of water and wastewater. Recognizing that all waters are potential sources of supply, the book's tradition of presenting treatment processes in context of what they can do, rather than in the context of water or wastewater treatment, is becoming more appropriate a s the concept of total water management gains greater acceptance.The sixth edition has been improved with new material added on the EPANET model for analyzing water distribution systems, the processing of sludges, and water reuse. The existing coverage of water use, population projections, urban hydrology, storm drainage system design, and treatment processes has been substantially revised to reflect the latest technologies, engineering practices, and regulations. The authors have included a number of new examples and problems based on actual engineering designs and operations. Computer-oriented solutions are stressed where appropriate. The presentation has been clarified where necessary to make this a valuable text and reference for the civil and environmental engineering student.

This sixth edition of Water Supply and Pollution Control has been updated and modernized in many ways. There is new material on treatment processes, water use and development, population forecasting, urban storm drainage, distribution system design (EPANET is introduced and examples and problems are developed to demonstrate its use), sludge processing, and advanced wastewater treatment. In particular, there are significant revisions of the chapters or sections of water supply and use (Chapters 3 and 4), water distribution (Chapter 5), hydrology of sewer and storm drainage systems (Chapter 6), biological treatment processes (Chapter 12), processing of sludges (Chapter 13), and advanced wastewater treatment (Chapter 14). Several solved examples and end-of-chapter problems have been added, many of them designed for computer solutions. Greater clarity in presentation has been achieved. Consistent with the original intent of the book, the emphasis is on the application of scientific methods to problems associated with the development, movement, and treatment process in the context of what they can do, rather than in the context of water or wastewater treatment, is becoming more appropriate as we move toward the concept of total water management, recognizing that all waters are potential sources of supply. Water reuse is becoming an increasingly important consideration nationally, and additional material on this subject has been added. On the water supply side, more attention is paid to sharing water with natural systems and the impacts this has on the quantities of water available for traditional water-using sectors, including the public.
The authors wish to acknowledge the advice and assistance of students, professors, and practicing engineers who have reviewed and commented on previous editions. Particular recognition is given to those who helped prepare the manuscript for the sixth edition, namely Audrey Hammer and Bette Viessman. We are indebted to them for their perseverance and understanding and for the excellent quality of their work.
