Water Works Engineering: Planning, Design, and Operation
This book offers the most in-depth, step-by-step coverage available of contemporary water treatment plant planning, design, and operations. Start by reviewing the state-of-the-art in water treatment technology, along with future trends. Understand the key water quality constituents and their health significance; and the unit operations and water treatment processes in most widespread use. Walk step-by-step through water treatment plant planning and design, including predesign reports, problem definition, site selection, and more. Next, review key issues such as raw water intake, screening, aeration, conveyance, flow measurement, pumping, coagulation, flocculation, precipitation, sedimentation, filtration, disinfection, and fluoridation. The book includes detailed coverage of aesthetic issues such as color, taste, and odor control; techniques for residuals management; a guide to instrumentation and control; a review of nonconventional processes; and a troubleshooting guide for avoiding key design errors.
