Theory and Practice of Water and Wastewater Treatment
This student-friendly text focuses on the mechanics of the processes used to treat water or wastewater. Processes are grouped according to theoretical principles as opposed to their occurrence in water or wastewater treatment operations. Essential background information for design and assessment of treatment procedures is included in the first sections. Basic theory of most treatment processes is presented later on in the book, with more emphasis on common applications. Formulas are described in-depth; and key references are supplied at each chapter's end for readers who wish to expand their knowledge.
