Overview

Urban Water by S. Mambretti, C. A. Brebbia

The present volume contains the papers presented at the First International Conference on the Design, Construction, Maintenance, Monitoring and Control of Urban Water Systems. As our cities continue to expand, their urban infrastructures need to be re-evaluated and adapted to new requirements related to the increase in population and the growing areas under urbanization. This book considers these problems and deals with two main topics: water supply systems and urban drainage. The papers presented in this book make a significant contribution to the solution of Urban Water issues. They are classified under the following topics: Water Supply; Leakage and Losses; Water Quality; Water and Sustainability; Flood Control; Storage Tanks.
