Urban Drainage Practice.pdf
Urban Drainage Practice will provide detailed guidance and practical advice on the design, operation, planning, management and maintenance principles required to address all major urban drainage issues. With the recent flooding incidents in the UK and internationally, and the UK government recommendations following the recent Pitt Review, this is a very topical issue. These recent incidents of recurrent flooding are examined within the book. Each chapter features an illustrative case study that will appeal to practitioners, and text has a strong practical focus throughout.
