In view of the many excellent treatises on Waterworks Engineering already in existence, it may appear that there is little opening for another work on the same subject. In the opinion of the writer and the publishers of this book, however, there is still need for a small work, more particularly suitable, perhaps, for engineering students, setting forth in a compact manner the general scientific principles on which the subject is based, and serving as an introduction to the larger, more technical, and more highly priced treatises.
It is in the hope of supplying such a need that the book makes its appearance.
Special prominence has therefore been given to such questions as the quality of the water, the interpretation of analyses, the stability of masonry dams, the flow of water through the pipes, and the general application of mathematics to the subject, etc.
At the same time, it has been the aim of the writer to bear well in mind the fact that theory is useless without practical knowledge to supplement it. Many 'rules of thumb' and practical hints, as well as descriptions of existing works, are given, based either on the writer's own experience or on that of others, and it is hoped that the young engineer will find the book useful as an introduction either to his practical work or to his study of more comprehensive books.
Little has been said about pumping machinery in dealing with supplies requiring to be artificially raised. It was felt that to have dealt with this part of the subject adequately would have unduly extended the book to little purpose, and that there are many excellent works dealing with it; it was thought, however, that the very few general observations which have been introduced might serve as a guide to a more extended examination.
