Now in its Sixth Edition, Site Engineering has long been the leading textbook used in site engineering, planning, and construction courses. It presents the complex principles and techniques of site grading, drainage, earthwork, and road alignment in a way that is easy for students to understand. The new edition features completely revised information on stormwater management and green infrastructure, as well as many new and updated case studies. All of the illustrations in the book will be redone to create a unified look that aligns with the digital, vector-based graphics used in landscape architecture practices today. CAD files of all the drawings in the book will be made available for instructor use. Ancillary PowerPoint slides will be posted online, and a companion workbook will be available for purchase.

The late Steven Strom, Fasla, was Associate Professor of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.Kurt Nathan, Ms, Pe, is Professor Emeritus at Rutgers, The State Uni?versity of New Jersey, and was formerly a consulting engineer for Conservation Engineering.Jake Woland, Asla, is a landscape architect with Hewitt in Seattle, Washington.
