Water-Resources Engineering provides rigorous, in-depth coverage of the fundamentals of water-resources engineering. The text sequentially covers the theory and design applications in each of the key areas of water-resources engineering, including hydraulics, hydrology, and water-resources planning and management. Providing a clear overview of the technical areas of the discipline, the text encourages you to view water-resource systems holistically, and prepares you for a lifetime of learning. Presented from first principles, the text is reinforced by detailed presentations of design applications. 

The 4th Edition has been updated with new material throughout, including a new section on pump-station design for sanitary sewers.
