Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Reuse, 4/e is a thorough update of McGraw-Hill's authoritative book on wastewater treatment. No environmental engineering professional or civil or and environmental engineering major should be without a copy of this book- tt describes the technological and regulatory changes that have occurred over the last ten years in this discipline, including: improved techniques for the characterization of wastewaters; improved fundamental understanding of many of the existing unit operations and processes used for wastewater treatment, especially those processes used for the biological removal of nutrients; greater implementation of several newer treatment technologies (e.g., UV disinfection, membrane filtration, and heat drying); greater concern for the long term health and environmental impacts of wastewater constituents; greater emphasis on advanced wastewater treatment and risk assessment for water reuse applications; changes in regulations and the development of new technologies for wastewater disinfection; and new regulations governing the treatment, reuse, and disposal of sludge (biosolids).

Greater concern for infrastructure renewal including upgrading the design and performance of wastewater treatment plants.

This revision contains a strong focus on advanced wastewater treatment technologies and stresses the reuse aspects of wastewater and biosolids.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Water is, without a doubt, earth's most critical resource; and the ability to manage that resource in the most efficient way is a highly necessary skill. Wastewater Engineering is a compendium of information for civil and environmental engineering majors. This outstanding fourth edition incorporates the latest developments, data, and design issues into the vast body of knowledge that has been carried over from previous editions. It is organized into a useful number of potential courses, and the inclusion of the latest relevant information makes this book a great reference for anyone in the field.

This edition has been prepared by David H. Stensel, George Tchobanoglous, and Franklin L. Burton to address the significant new developments that have occurred in the field. For example, the theory and practice chapters, separated in the third edition, are now combined to provide subject continuity and eliminate redundancy. Because of the importance of biological wastewater treatment, four separate chapters have been devoted to this subject. The chapter on advanced wastewater treatment has been expanded to include processes that are increasingly required to meet more stringent discharge requirements. A new chapter on disinfection has been added to deal with recent developments in the field. The chapter on reclamation and reuse has been revised completely, with much new material added. Because of the growing importance of biosolids management, an entire chapter is devoted to this subject. The issues of process design and performance to meet more stringent permit requirements, including the upgrading of existing treatment plants, are considered in Chapter 15.

As a teaching tool, this textbook provides a robust and well-organized syllabus for several different courses in the field of wastewater treatment and reuse. And, as a desk reference for environmental and civil engineers, it is a resource that will never gather dust. John Vacca

John Vacca, the former computer security official (CSO) for NASA's space station program (Freedom), has written 38 books about advanced storage, computer security, and aerospace technology.
