Peak Water: How We Built Civilisation on Water and Drained the World Dry Civilisation is thirsty... it never stopped to think what would happen if the water ran out. ALEXANDER BELL

Peak water is the point when the available water is not enough to meet the demands of the world's growing population. We might live on a watery world, but we are exhausting accessible supplies. Many parts of the world are already facing this crisis, and not only in the developing world. Some of the places experiencing 'peak water' are in the USA, Europe and the UK. Even the wettest lands will be engulfed in the global catastrophe that looms. This is the issue of our age. Overview from BARNES&NOBLE (barnesandnoble.com).

by Hugh Howes ISBN: 9781136757754 ISBN-13: 9781136757754
[ hide overview ]

Strategic Planning for Water Strategic Planning for Water considers how to manage water as a strategic resource that we must use more wisely. This extremely topical book examines the challenges of: how to ensure that water supplies are adequate to meet our future needs, how to reduce the risk of flooding as we are faced by stormier winters and rising sea levels, how to better manage our waste water, how to further improve the water quality of our rivers in response to the Water Framework Directive.
Mark Southgate, Head of Planning and Environmental Assessment, Environment Agency, writes: We think of the United Kingdom as a water-rich country but there are parts that have less water to drink per person than Syria. We now use much more water than in the past and climate change brings the added challenge of drier summers and less water in the south and east.
Strategic Planning for Water examines the neglected relationship between planning for water and spatial planning. It provides the background to sustainable water management and assistance to spatial planners in understanding the complex water environment.
This book is essential reading for planners, developers and all those who must in future effectively incorporate water issues into their plans, developments and lifestyles if these are to be truly sustainable. Overview from BARNES&NOBLE (barnesandnoble.com).

Bioassessment of Freshwater Ecosystems

by Robert C. Bailey, Richard H. Norris, Trefor B. Reynoldson ISBN: 9781461347057 ISBN-13: 9781461347057
[ hide overview ]

Bioassessment of Freshwater Ecosystems Aquatic ecosystem assessment is a rapidly developing field, and one of the newer approaches to assessing the condition of rivers and lakes is the Reference Condition Approach. This is a significant advancement in biomonitoring because it solves the problem of trying to locate nearby control or reference sites when studying an ecosystem that may be degraded, a problem that bedevils traditional approaches. Rather than using upstream reference sites in a river system or next-bay-over reference sites in a lake, an array of ecologically similar, least-exposed to stress sites scattered throughout a catchment or region is used. Once the reference condition has been established, any site suspected of being impacted can be assessed by comparison to the reference sites, and its status determined. The Reference Condition database, once formed, can be used repeatedly. Overview from BARNES&NOBLE (barnesandnoble.com).

    Evolution of Water Supply Through the Millennia

    [ hide overview ]

    Evolution of Water Supply Through the Millennia Evolution of Water Supply Through the Millennia presents the major achievements in the scientific fields of water supply technologies and management throughout the millennia. It provides valuable insights into ancient water supply technologies with their apparent characteristics of durability, adaptability to the environment, and sustainability. A comparison of the water technological developments in several civilizations is undertaken. These technologies are the underpinning of modern achievements in water engineering and management practices. It is the best proof that "the past is the key for the future."
    Rapid technological progress in the twentieth century created a disregard for past water technologies that were considered to be far behind the present ones. There are a great deal of unresolved problems related to the management principles, such as the decentralization of the processes, the durability of the water projects, the cost effectiveness, and sustainability issues such as protection from floods and droughts. In the developing world, such problems were intensified to an unprecedented degree.
    Moreover, new problems have arisen such as the contamination of surface and groundwater. Naturally, intensification of unresolved problems led societies to revisit the past and to reinvestigate the successful past achievements. To their surprise, those who attempted this retrospect, based on archaeological, historical, and technical evidence were impressed by two things: the similarity of principles with present ones and the advanced level of water engineering and management practices.

    [ hide overview ]

    Soft Computing in Water Resources Engineering Engineers have attempted to solve water resources engineering problems with the help of empirical, regression-based and numerical models. Empirical models are not universal, nor are regression-based models. The numerical models are, on the other hand, physics-based but require substantial data measurement and parameter estimation. Hence, there is a need to employ models that are robust, user-friendly, and practical and that do not have the shortcomings of the existing methods. Artificial intelligence methods meet this need.
    Soft Computing in Water Resources Engineering: Artificial Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic and Genetic Algorithms introduces the basics of artificial neural networks (ANN), fuzzy logic (FL) and genetic algorithms (GA). It gives details on the feed forward back propagation algorithm and also introduces neuro-fuzzy modeling to readers. Artificial intelligence method applications covered in the book include predicting and forecasting floods, predicting suspended sediment, predicting event-based flow hydrographs and sedimentographs, locating seepage path in an earth-fill dam body, and the predicting dispersion coefficient in natural channels. The author also provides an analysis comparing the artificial intelligence models and contemporary non-artificial intelligence methods [empirical, numerical, regression, etc.].
    The ANN, FL, and GA are fairly new methods in water resources engineering. The first publications appeared in the early 1990s and quite a few studies followed in the early 2000s. Although these methods are currently widely known in journal publications, they are still very new for many scientific readers and they are totally new for students, especially undergraduates. Numerical methods were first taught at the graduate level but are now taught at the undergraduate level. There are already a few graduate courses developed on AI methods in engineering and included in the graduate curriculum of some universities. It is expected that these courses, too, will soon be taught at the undergraduate levels.

    [ hide overview ]

    Water-Quality Engineering in Natural Systems This textbook details the fundamental equations that describe the fate and transport of contaminantsin the water environment. The application of these fundamental equations to the design of environmental-control systems and methodologies for assessing the impact of contaminant discharges into rivers, lakes, wetlands, ground water, and oceans are all covered. Readers learn to assess how much waste can be safely assimilatedinto a water body by developing a solid understanding of the relationship between the type of pollutant discharged, the characteristics of the receiving water, and physical, chemical, and biological impacts. In cases of surface runoff from urban and agricultural watersheds, quantitative relationships between the quality of surface runoff and the characteristics of contaminant sources located within the watersheds are presented.

    Some of the text's distinguishing features include its emphasis on the engineering design of systems that control the fate and transport of contaminants in the water environment, the design of remediation systems, and regulatory constraints. Particular attention is given to use-attainability analyses and the estimation of total maximum daily loads, both of which are essential components of water-quality control in natural systems. Readers are provided with a thorough explanation of the complex set of laws and regulations governing water-quality control in the United States.

    Proven as an effective textbook in several offerings of the author's class "Water Quality Control in Natural Systems", the flow of the text is carefully structured to facilitate learning. Moreover, a number of practical pedagogical tools are offered:
  • Practical examples used throughout the text illustrate the effects of controlling the quality, quantity, timing, and distribution of contaminant discharges into the environment
  • End-of-chapter problems, and an accompanying solutions manual, help readers assess their grasp of each topic as they progress through the text
  • Several appendices with useful reference material are provided, including current U.S. Water Quality Standards
  • Detailed bibliography guides readers to additional resources to explore particular topics in greater depth.


  • With its emphasis on contaminant fate and transport and design of environmental-control systems, this text is ideal for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in environmental and civil engineering programs.Environmental scientists and practicing environmental/civil engineers will also find the text relevant and useful.
