use of simple rather than sophisticated approaches, thus greatly simplifying
problems of O&M. The textbook of 400 pages covers all aspects of MSSs
systems including institutional, economic, financing, and environmental as
well as technical engineering aspects for both sanitary and industrial
wastewaters. It also recognizes the need to give attention to not only the
affluent urban sectors which case afford sanitary sewers but also to the
problem of ensuring adequate management of excreta from buildings not
connected to sewers but utilize individual on-site disposal units. It covers all
components of MSSs, including the collection component (collecting sewers,
interceptors, and pumping to collect and deliver the sewage to the treatment
plants, plus treatment and disposal. Dr. Harvey F. Ludwig of Bangkok is
Chief Author, assisted by the three co-authors. Their combined experience in
MSS technology is estimated 60 man-years, about one-third in IC and
two-thirds in DC systems. Dr. Ludwig is a member of the National
Academy of Engineering of the U.S.
