More About This Textbook


This compendium represents the first peer-reviewed book of its kind published by AWWA's Membrane Processes Committee (MPC). This book represents the best membrane-related papers from 2004 AWWA Annual Conference, 2004 Water Quality Technology Conference, and 2005 Membrane Technology Conference, which were all peer reviewed and author updated. Sections cover Section removal efficiencies, membrane performance, pretreatment strategies, regulatory issues, filtration guidance, studies on operations and integrated membrane systems, MBR (membrane bioreactors), and reuse issues.
