American Sewerage Practice, Vol. 1 free pdf Excerpt from American Sewerage Practice, Vol. 1: Design of Sewers The death of Mr. Metcalf in January, 1926, left upon the surviving author the responsibility for a revised edition of this work. It is fitting that in this new edition acknowledgment should be made of the energy and enthusiasm devoted by Mr. Metcalf to the original preparation of the book. But for his willingness to devote a large amount of time to the accumulation and digestion of the material required, it is doubtful if the book would have ever appeared. The commendation which it has received was a source of much gratification to him. In the fourteen years which have elapsed since the publication of the first edition, American practice in sewer design has attained a greater degree of uniformity, considerable advance has been made in the methods of application of principles, and there has been material increase in the amount of pertinent information available. A revised edition has, therefore, become desirable. In the new edition there has been a considerable rearrangement of material- some chapters have been divided and others consolidated, and many sections have largely been rewritten. It is believed that the book has been made more nearly complete as a work of reference. The work of revision has extended over several years. A material portion of it had been accomplished before the death of Mr. Metcalf and had the benefit of his criticism. Important parts of the work have been done by Charles W. Sherman and Frank A. Marston, partners in the firm of Metcalf and Eddy, and by John W.Raymond and Herman G.Dresser of the staff, while other partners and employees have helped to a lesser degree. Professor R. G. Tyler, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has also shared in bringing some chapters down to date, and in editing the whole volume.
