REFER TO THE BEST NEW PLANNING, DESIGN, AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS FOR TODAY'S WATER TREATMENT FACILITIES

This classic reference — the bible of the field since 1939 — has been completely updated for this new Fourth Edition, with typically unsurpassed coverage of water treatment plant design topics. Let a team of water treatment plant design experts — more than 40 international authorities — give you comprehensive guidance on modernizing existing water treatment facilities and planning new ones — from initial plans and permits through design, construction, and start-up.

In addition, you'll learn about the latest U.S. EPA regulations and about flexible design that can meet anticipated requirements, and find a wealth of information on instrumentation and control and structural, electrical, and design reliability developments — plus updates on water treatment methods such as aeration, coagulation, flocculation, clarification, filtration, oxidation, and disinfection.

This outstanding reference gives you state-of-the-art coverage of:

  • Environmental impact and project permitting
  • Site selection
  • Master planning and treatment process selection
  • Ion exchange
  • Membrane processes
  • Hydraulics
  • Architecture
  • Pilot plant design
  • Construction costs
  • Operations and maintenance
  • And more!

NEW!

  • UV technology
  • Antisabotage and vandalism measures
  • Codes, regulations, and standards

  • Book News Annotation:

    A joint effort of the American Water Works Association and the American Society of Civil Engineers, this is the new edition of a manual of engineering practice in water treatment plant design first published in 1939 and incorporating developments in pretreatment and filtration processes since the 1969 edition. Thirty chapters cover intake facilities, aeration and air stripping, high-rate granular filtration, oxidation and disinfection, ion exchange applications in water treatment, membrane processes, chemicals and chemical handling, process instrumentation and controls, operations and maintenance considerations, cost estimating, and ultraviolet disinfection, among other topics.

    About the Author

    The leading organization of water management professionals in the United States, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) empaneled a committee of 23 experts to compile authoritative definitions and develop this dictionary. This special Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has worked since 1994 creating this unequaled reference. James M. Symons, Cullen Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at the University of Houston, served as Project Supervisor and Editor. AWWA has its headquarters in Denver, Colorado.
