Comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles and current management practices in water processing, water distribution, wastewater collection, wastewater treatment, and sludge processing is preserved in this text. Necessary background information is provided to readers interested in continued study of sanitary technology and in operation and maintenance of water and wastewater facilities. Mathematical analysis is minimized to accommodate a broad range of reader backgrounds.
The text provides review of the disciplines that have specific application in water supply and wastewater management, including chemistry, biology, hydraulics, and hydrology.
The most extensive revisions are in the topics of water quality, advanced wastewater, treatment, and water reuse.
The text was edited for greater clarity and the addition of new problems, except for Chapters 6-10.
The subject matter has been integrated so readers can see the interrelationships between individual unit operations and integration of systems as a whole.
