An up-to-date introduction to environmental and civil engineering, this text discusses the concepts of materials and energy balances as applied to environmental unit processes. Also presented are the
basic concepts relating to an understanding of water, wastewater, stormwater, solid waste, hazardous waste, atmospheric, and general ecology. Students will gain competence in analyzing the flow of materials and energy,
and are exposed to environmental issues from a quantitative viewpoint instead of a purely rhetorical one.
