The main purpose of this book is to assist the reader in choosing the best method for providing clean and safe water in a developing country. Most of the book’s content comes from the knowledge gained from:
- Fifty-plus years of research and teaching in water resource engineering, hydrology and clean water for developing countries at both the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of California, Berkeley.
- Thirty-five years as an expert witness on numerous hydrologic and water resource engineering legal cases.
- Clean water projects that I was involved with in Kenya, Peru, Honduras and Guatemala between 2011 and 2017.
- Attendance at various courses including ones at the Centre for Affordable Water & Sanitation Technologies (CAWST) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and at “Potters for Peace” in Dodgeville, Wisconsin.
