Overview

Water and wastewater treatment plant operators must have a breadth of knowledge that encompasses more than scientific theory. They need to be generalists with knowledge bridging several scientific, academic, and engineering disciplines. Unfortunately, until now, many of the existing texts in the field were too limited in scope and narrow in focus.

Handbook of Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations is the first complete resource manual exclusively for water and wastewater plant operators. It is a thorough compilation of water science, treatment information, process control procedures, problem-solving techniques, safety and health information, and administrative and technological trends. The manual examines numerous real-world operating scenarios, including the intake of raw sewage and the treatment of water via residual management.

Each scenario includes a comprehensive problem-solving practice set, which enables readers to integrate relevant math with theory and practical applications. The systematic layout of this hands-on technical aid accelerates the learning of both current and future plant operators.
