"This is a well thought out and structured book. It is one that students can use to discover concepts and understand water system management, but it is also a reference that will stand them in good stead throughout their careers."
– Steve Whipp, United Utilities, UK

"[...] the author is very good. Having followed his books and seen the graphs over the years, they are very illustrative. [...] The selection of topics is very good. [...] Useful for anybody interested in water, wastewater and stormwater management and development. [...] A very interesting and useful book, bringing out the importance of systems thinking and integration of water, wastewater and stormwater systems in a wider societal context."
– Tapio S. Katko, Tampere University of Technology, Finland

Biography

Neil S. Grigg is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Colorado State University, where he focuses on water resources and infrastructure management. At Colorado State, he has been the head of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and director of the Colorado Water Resources Research Institute and Water Center. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, Auburn University, and Colorado State University and is a registered professional engineer in three states.

In addition to university work, Dr. Grigg has been a consulting engineer and state environmental official, and he has worked on a number of government policy and advisory panels. His current research is concentrated on urban water infrastructure, especially distribution systems management. He publishes widely on topics that range across water resources and infrastructure.

Dr. Grigg has been honored in selection for a number of important responsibilities. He is a life member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Water Works Association. He is a diplomate of the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers and a charter member of the Pan American Academy of Engineering. He serves the U.S. Supreme Court as River Master of the Pecos River, and in 2011 he chaired two national flood control panels, one for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the other for the National Institute of Building Sciences.
