Excellent July 10, 2011
Significant revisions and new material in this edition reflect the latest advances and critical topics in water supply and treatment. This is the all-in-one source for basics of water quality, from the rationale for low water-quality standards and goals to the [censored]sment of coastal flooding and other hazards. This textbook will give you most information, very detailed on most, if not all water treatment topics. I bought a lot of stuff from ecampus and they always deliver it fast and in great condition. I have never had any problems with ecampus.
