Cold Regions Utilities Monograph introduces the basic principles of environmental engineering in cold regions, where long period of extremely low temperatures, frozen ground conditions, small populations, and limited access pose significant engineering challenges. This TCCRE Monograph focuses on the design, construction, and operation of infrastructure components for the delivery of water, the removal of liquid and solid wastes, and the provision of power for services in the extremely cold environments found in the far north or south.
