Summary

Summary

This book provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental principles and current management practices in water processing, water distribution, wastewater collection, wastewater treatment, and sludge processing. It will provide necessary background 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. Among the key features of this new edition are: *Readers will benefit from a review of the disciplines that have specific application in water supply and wastewater management. The introductory chapters cover relevant principles from chemistry, biology, hydraulics, and hydrology. *Themost extensive revisions are in the topics of hydraulics, disinfection of drinking water, and wastewater processing; in editing the entire text for greater clarity; and the addition of new problems. *Extensive use of illustrations increases the understanding of concepts and shows modern equipment and facilities. Numerous sample calculations assist in the applications of equations, charts, and tabulated data. Answers are provided for some of
