Water Resources and Environmental History is a collection of historical articles that cover the existence and function of early water projects and origins of some of today's greatest water systems. Water and sedimentation topics extend back to the Greek and Roman Eras, the ancestral Puebloans who lived in southwestern Colorado 1,200 years ago, and the Incas who constructed Machu Picchu. The unique diversity of topics covered include: construction of the Suez Canal, a photo essay of the Strawberry Valley Project, history of the Bureau of Reclamation's dam design, historical perspectives on existing hydrologic and hydraulic programs, hydraulic laboratories, and engineering libraries. Practicing engineers, students, historians, and anyone interested in the origins of some of today's greatest water systems will benefit from reading this book.
