Overview

Completely up-to-date coverage of water treatment facility design and operation

This Second Edition of Susumu Kawamura's landmark volume offers comprehensive coverage of water treatment facility design, from the basic principles to the latest innovations. It covers a broad spectrum of water treatment process designs in detail and offers clear guidelines on how to choose the unit, process, and equipment that will maximize overall efficiency and minimize maintenance costs. This book also explores many important operational issues that affect today's plant operators and facility designers.

This new edition introduces several new subjects, including value engineering, watershed management, dissolved air flotation process, filtered reservoir (clearwell) design, and electrical system design. It provides expanded and updated coverage of objectives for finished water quality, instrumentation and control, disinfection process, ozonation, disinfection by-product control, the GAC process, and the membrane filtration process. Other important features of this Second Edition include:
* Practical guidance on the design of every water treatment plant component
* New information on plant layout, cost estimation, sedimentation issues, and more
* English and SI units throughout
* Help in designing for compliance with water treatment-related government regulations

Supplemented with hundreds of illustrations, charts, and tables, Integrated Design and Operation of Water Treatment Facilities, Second Edition is an indispensable, hands-on resource for civil engineers and managers, whether working on new facilities or redesigning and rebuilding existing facilities.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Drawing on his five decades of experience designing and operating water treatment facilities in many parts of the world, Kawamura discusses a broad spectrum of water treatment process design and important operational issues for engineers and plant operators in the industry. He updates and expands his 1991 to reflect developments in the process technology, recent issues that have risen, and more stringent drinking water quality standards. Among the new topics he has added are value engineering, watershed management, the dissolved air flotation process, filtered water reservoir design, electrical system design, ultraviolet ray disinfection, and dichlorination. He has also added four more appendices to bring the total to two dozen. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
