This text provides a thorough and balanced introduction to water quality engineering, air quality engineering, and hazardous waste management. The text develops the scientific principles needed to understand environmental engineering, and then brings those principles to life through application to the real-world solutions of environmental problems.

Suitable for a junior/senior level course in environmental engineering, but is also appropriate for graduate students who lack a solid background in environmental engineering.
