Water Supply Engineering by Subhash Verma, Varinder Kanwar, Siby John
This book completely covers a one-semester course on potable water supply systems in a single, compact volume for undergraduate students. It covers all the three main topics—sources of water supply, water treatment and water distribution. Using the latest tools and methods, it conceptualizes and formulates the resource allocation problems, and deals appropriately with the complexity of constraints in the demand and available supplies of water.
The book integrates the concepts of chemistry, biology and hydraulics as applicable to water supply engineering. It presents the basic and applied principles and most recent practices and technologies.
Apart from the students of water supply engineering, practising engineers, professionals and researchers will benefit from the book.
