This book presents the major engineering achievements in underground aqueducts from around the world and throughout history. It provides valuable insights into water technologies and management with respect to durability, adaptability to the environment, and sustainability. Comparisons of the technological underground aqueduct developments from several regions are made. These technologies are the underpinning of modern achievements in water supply engineering and water management practices, and current issues of sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and decentralization have led engineers to consider combining older proven technologies with modern infrastructure advancements.

About the Author
Dr. Andreas N. Angelakis is a researcher at the Institute of Iraklion, National Agricultural Research Foundation. He is also a Technical Consultant for the Hellenic Union of Municipal Enterprises for Water Supply and Wastewater Services (EDEYA) and for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the former President of EUREAU (European Federation of National Associations of Water and Waste Water Services), Brussels, Belgium. He is an IWA Fellow Member, Honorary Member of IWA, and Chairperson of IWA SG on Water and Wastewater in Ancient Civilizations. He earned his Ph.D. in Soil Physics from the University of California, Davis.

"Underground Aqueducts Handbook offers the first synthesis on aqueducts, including those conveying water and those tapping groundwater. This is the most comprehensive review of aqueduct technology as it concerns most continents and most periods, from prehistory to the present day, thanks to a multidisciplinary approach. It underlines the necessity to preserve and reuse, or redevelop, such sustainable technologies in the global context of aridification and increasing need for water supply."
- Julien Charbonnier, Laboratory ArScAn, Nanterre, France

"...the material is well documented and convincing. Any specialist and many common readers should be interested to have this book on their bookshelf."
