Editorial Reviews

Mays (civil and environmental engineering, Arizona State University)presents material on the design of basins and detection systems for managing stormwater flow in urban environments and on subsurface and wetland issues, and provides a complete methodology for regulatingsewer overflow. Coverage encompasses hydrology and hydraulics forexcess water management, design of stormwater inlets,hydraulics of sewer systems, design of detention systems, design of infiltration basins for stormwater, and risk/reliability models for design. The book is a referencefor engineers, managers, operators, and analysts involved with various aspects of urban stormwater systems.
