Excerpt from Sanitary Engineering The subject discussed in these pages was, up to within a few years, comparatively unkwn. Sanitary engineering - like electrical engineering - is one of the recent branches of civil engineering; sanitary science, the researches of which form one of its foundations, may likewise be considered a new science, although it has, in the last few years, made such rapid strides that its importance is beginning to be more universally recognized. The general public has but a vague idea of the meaning of the term sanitary engineering. Many mistaken or narrow views exist in regard thereto, which, I trust, this book may help to dispel.
