Larry W. Mays (Scottsdale, AZ) is Professor of Civil and Engineering at The Arizona State University and former chairman of the department. He has published extensively on water resources literature, including over 60 refered journal publications, 65 papers in proceedings of national and international conferences, 30 reports, and two chapters in The Handbook of Civil Engineers Practice. His books include: co-author of Applied Hydrology by V.T. Chow, D.R. Maidment, and L. Mays, published by McGraw-Hill in 1988; editor of Reliability Analysis of Water Distribution Systems published by ASCE in 1989; co-author of Hydrosystems Engineering and Management with Y.K. Tung and published by McGraw-Hill in 1992; co-editor of Computer Modeling of Free-Surface and Pressurized Flow published by Kluwer Publishers in 1994; author of Optical Control of Hydrosystems published by Marcel-Dekker in 1996; and editor-in-chief of Water Resources Handbook published by McGraw-Hill in 1996; Water Distribution Systems Handbook, and Hydraulic Design Handbook also published by McGraw-Hill.
