Environmental Engineering, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive introduction to air, water, noise, and radioactive materials pollution and its control. In addition to the engineering principles governing the generation and control of these pollutants, this up-to-date third edition focuses on legal and regulatory principles, risk analysis, and the effect these pollutants have on the environment. Beginning with a historical background of environmental engineering, topics explored include water quality and waste water treatment, air pollution control, solid and hazardous waste disposal, noise pollution, environmental ethics, and a discussion on the increasingly important field of environmental engineering. Introduces air, water, noise and radioactive materials pollutants and how to control them.Includes the engineering and legal and regulatory principles involved.Discusses the effects that the pollutants can have on the environment and how to analyze these risks.
