"...the book is written for an interdisciplinary audience and is an introductory text directed at undergraduates, but it would serve as a starting point for anyone new to the field or for practitioners requiring a fresh view. This second edition builds strongly on the first, but it has been restructured, making the content more accessible and logically arranged. A valuable section on the Water Framework Directive has ben added, as has a closing chapter on "Sustainable principles in water management"
