Benefit-Cost Analysis for Water System Planning by Charles W. Howe

By Charles W. Howe

About The Product

Published by way of the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Water assets Monograph Series.

This is a small ebook on a truly huge subject: water source procedure making plans. The time period water source procedure as used right here capability a mixture of structural and nonstructural measures, together with ideas of operation, for remodeling shares or flows of water into extra helpful outputs of water, water companies, or water-related items. Examples of those outputs would come with municipal water offer, flood keep watch over, waste disposal and water caliber administration, navigation, irrigation, and hydroelectric energy. either the unique water inputs and the outputs are characterised by means of volume, caliber, time, and position.

Chapter 1 creation (pages 1–8):
