Technology in American Water Development is an exploratory study. This book addresses the proven technology which has influenced water development in the past, those still effective in shaping its course and the emerging technology of today. The heart of this study is in the thirty-one case descriptions selected from both the emerging and proven technology. Each case description has been treated as briefly as is consistent with clarity, and nontechnical language has been used wherever possible. This title will help to introduce engineers and physical scientists to the administrative problems and opportunities which stem from their works.
'The authors have set themselves a formidable task, as well as a fruitful one, in their analysis of the adaptation of administrative structure for water development to problems presented by technology the authors attempt to relate in extenso the problems posed in moving toward organization for development. They give many solutions evolved in the past and those emerging from additional technology of present and future.' American Journal of Public Health and the Nation's Health
