Water: A Manual for Engineers, Architects, Planners and Managers

Ashok Kumar Jain (Author)
Synopsis The crisis of water all over has brought renewed on the urgent need for sustainable management of the water resource. This issue is intertwined and integrated to cultural, historical, political, economic and social development, which have bearing on the regional stability and international co-operation. Fast increasing population is leading to indiscriminate expansion of urban footprints on the landscape of India. This is putting unbearable pressure on the ever-dwindling water resource. Its sustainable development would chart the course for the future growth of the country. Therefore, it is imperative not only to initiate new projects and upgrade our present infrastructure, but also to promote water conservation. This book provides a holistic and a comprehensive perspective to understand, analyze and deal with the short term and long range issues which are involved in the planning, conservation and management of the water resource. It provides a window to much needed basic information for the engineers, planners, architects, managers and all those involved with water management.
