Contents:
Wastewater engineering: an overview -- Constituents in wastewater -- Analysis and selection of wastewater flowrates and constituent loadings -- Introduction to process analysis and selection -- Physical unit operations -- Chemical unit processes -- Fundamentals of biological treatment -- Suspended growth biological treatment processes -- Attached growth and combined biological treatment processes -- Anaerobic suspended and attached growth biological treatment processes -- Advanced wastewater treatment -- Disinfection processes -- Water reuse -- Treatment, reuse, and disposal of solids and biosolids -- Issues related to treatment-plant performance -- Appendixes.
Summary: "Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Reuse, 4/e" is a thorough update of McGraw-Hill's authoritative book on wastewater treatment. No environmental engineering professional or civil or and environmental engineering major should be without a copy of this book. It describes the technological and regulatory changes that have occurred over the last ten years in this discipline, including: improved techniques for the characterization of wastewaters; improved fundamental understanding of many of the existing unit operations and processes used for wastewater treatment, especially those processes used for the biological removal of nutrients; greater implementation of several newer treatment technologies (e.g., UV disinfection, membrane filtration, and heat drying); greater concern for the long term health and environmental impacts of wastewater constituents; greater emphasis on advanced wastewater treatment and risk assessment for water reuse applications; changes in regulations and the development of new technologies for wastewater disinfection; and new regulations governing the treatment, reuse, and disposal of sludge (biosolids). Greater concern for infrastructure renewal including upgrading the design and performance of wastewater treatment plants. This revision contains a strong focus on advanced wastewater treatment technologies and stresses the reuse aspects of wastewater and biosolids.
