Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Infrastructure Management, Second Edition

Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Infrastructure Management, Second Edition Lowest new price: $126.69
Lowest used price: $124.27
List price: $134.00
Author: Neil S. Grigg
Brand: Grigg Neil S

Urban water services are building blocks for healthy cities, and they require complex and expensive infrastructure systems. Most of the infrastructure is out of sight and tends to be taken for granted, but an infrastructure financing crisis looms in the United States because the systems are aging and falling behind on maintenance. A road map for public works and utility professionals, Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Infrastructure Management, Second Edition provides clear and practical guidance for life-cycle management of water infrastructure systems.

Grounded in solid engineering and business principles, the book explains how to plan, budget, design, construct, and manage the physical infrastructure of urban water systems. It blends knowledge from management fields such as facilities, finance, and maintenance with information about the unique technical attributes of water, wastewater, and stormwater systems.

  • Addresses how to make a business case for infrastructure funding
  • Demonstrates how to apply up-to-date methods for capital improvement planning and budgeting
  • Outlines the latest developments in infrastructure asset management
  • Identifies cutting-edge developments in information technology applied to infrastructure management
  • Presents a realistic view of how risk management is applied to urban water infrastructure settings
  • Explains the latest maintenance and operations methods for water, wastewater, and stormwater systems

The author describes current thinking on best management practices and topics such as asset management, vulnerability assessment, and total quality management of infrastructure systems. Expanded and updated throughout, this second edition reflects the considerable advances that have occurred in infrastructure management over the past ten years. Useful as a reference and a professional development guide, this unique book offers tools to help you lower costs and mitigate the rate shocks associated with managing infrastructure for growth, deterioration, and regulatory requirements.

  • The latest infrastructure management and maintenance technologies
  • Information on the inventories of systems and the configuration of infrastructure

Understanding Radioactive Waste

Understanding Radioactive Waste Lowest new price: $846.55
Lowest used price: $39.95
List price: $12.95
Author: Raymond L. Murray
Brand: Brand: Battelle Press

Murray (emeritus, nuclear engineering, North Carolina State U.) uses non-technical language to describe the scientific issues surrounding the handling and hazards of nuclear waste. Chapters cover such topics as the biological effects of radiation, storage and reprocessing of fuels, transportation of waste, treatment of low-level waste, disposal of various kinds of waste, and laws and regulation. Given Murray's history with the Manhattan project, with the design of the first nuclear reactor, and as the executive editor of the Journal of Nuclear Energy , the generally reassuring tone is unsurprising.

Industrial Pollution Prevention Handbook

Industrial Pollution Prevention Handbook Lowest new price: $56.00
Lowest used price: $2.95
List price: $120.75
Author: Harry Freeman

Don't Clean Up Pollutants--Prevent Them! .

. Why conduct expensive clean ups when you can drasticaly reduce pollutants by improving management, boosting efficiency, eliminating toxins from your production process, or modifying product design. Author Harry Freeman of the EPA's Risk Reduction Engineering Lab, gives you a step-by-step pollution prevention (P2) program in this guide, plus case histories that show how to implement it in 16 different industries. .

. You'll see how to: integrate P2 into your TQM program; conduct risk analysis to set P2 priorities; measure P2 progress; use Total Cost Assessment to prove the profitability of P2 programs and win management support; apply P2 to the electronics, chemical, petroleum, metal fabrication, textile, paper, pharmaceutical, auto, electroplating, and furniture industries; and much more.


Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation (New Directions in Civil Engineering)

Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation (New Directions in Civil Engineering) Lowest new price: $140.00
Lowest used price: $122.57
List price: $172.95
Author: Raymond N. Yong

Why do some contaminants remain in soils indefinitely? How much of a threat do they pose to human health or the environment? The need for effective and economic site decontamination arises daily. Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation discusses why soils remain contaminated, focusing on the development of the factors, properties, characteristics, and parameters of soils and individual contaminants.
Subjects covered include the basic properties of soils affecting accumulation of contaminants, long-term retention of contaminants and their fate, including the development of intermediate products. The author emphasizes the factors, interactions, and mechanisms important in the bonding and partitioning process. He provides the groundwork for determining the fate of pollutants in soils and sediments and their mitigation.
Geoenvironmental Engineering: Contaminated Soils, Pollutant Fate, and Mitigation focuses on why soils and sediments remain contaminated, not how they became contaminated in the first place. You will understand why specific contaminants remain in soils and sediments, how much of a threat they pose to human health and the environment, and what steps to take for mitigation. With this information you can determine the extent of the contamination of soils and sediments, how long they will remain a threat, and what methods to use for their remediation.
