This volume contains a treatise by Frederick Haynes Newell on the subject of American irrigation in the early 1890s, concentrating on water quality and distribution in arid areas. Frederick Haynes Newell (1862 - 1932) was the first Director of the United States Reclamation Service. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in hydrology, especially its developments in theory and methodology. Other notable works by this author include: "Oil Well Drilling" (1888), "Agriculture by Irrigation" (1894), and "Hydrography of the Arid Regions" (1891). Contents include: "Preceding Reports", "Area Irrigated", "Irrigable Area", "Size of Streams", "Relative Run-off", "Fluctuations of Rivers and Lakes", "Nonperiodic Oscillation", "Subsurface Waters", "Cost and Value of Water Supply", "Principal Drainage Basins", "Missouri River Basin", "Location and Area" etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.
