About this book Written by a British Civil Engineer, this book deals, predominantly, with the UK water sector, however, principles and methods are largely international and therefore much, if not all of it will be of interest to all. The Power of Water looks at virtually all aspects of in-land water management in some detail, including natural and man-made systems. Based on their history, it goes on to look at legislation, management structures, finance, quality control, and even recreation. It is a book that doesn't have to be read cover-to-cover or page-by-page; you can select your own area of interest or just read it like a novel. Either way, you will hopefully gain some benefit and knowledge that could lead to a desire to enter the water industry. The world needs clean, piped water and sanitation - and it needs people like you, whatever your background, to make it happen.
