Summary

Water-Resources Engineering by David A. Chin provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles and practice of water-resources engineering. The practice areas of hydraulics, hydrology, and water-resources planning and management are all covered in sufficient detail to provide practitioners with the theoretical bases and sufficient technical knowledge for most design applications. A firm grasp of the material presented in this book will prepare practitioners for both conventional practice and for the development of innovative designs that come from a clear understanding of fundamental principles. Professionally accepted methods for the design of water distribution systems, sanitary sewer systems, stormwater management systems, and wellfields are all covered and design examples are presented. Legal and regulatory issues related to the practice of water-resources engineering, assessment of economic feasibility, and planning for water supply, flood control, irrigation, and hydropower projects are covered and illustrated by practical examples.
