Keeping It Green: Environmental Engineering At Work
This exhibit displays selected books about environmental engineering from the collection of the Engineering Library.
“Environmental engineering is a profession that applies mathematics and science to utilize the properties of matter and sources of energy in the solution of problems of environmental sanitation. These include the provision of safe, palatable, and ample public water supplies; the proper disposal of or recycle of wastewater and solid wastes; the adequate drainage of urban and rural areas for proper sanitation; and the control of water, soil, and atmospheric pollution, and the social and environmental impact of these solutions... Historically, environmental engineering has been a specialty area of civil engineering. Today it is still primarily associated with civil engineering in academic curricula."
- From Davis, Mackenzie. Introduction to Environmental Engineering 5th ed. New York: McGraw-Hill, 2013. page 2.
