Abstract:It has been concluded that the emergence of water and waste systems was the result of the simultaneous and consubstantial emergence of society and technology in a interactive process that defined urban conditions, the problems associated with those conditions, the solutions to those problems and the identification of the relevant actors involved. This process contributed to the emergence of a new urban industrial society associated with new technical professions and a significantly transformed material environment. An analysis of this process suggests new ways of thinking about technology, social action and concepts of progress.
