    The Gold Standard for Wastewater Microbiology Training Manuals

    This manual by nationally renowned microbiologist Toni Glymph is the most comprehensive, understandable, and descriptive manual that I have found for training of microbiology in wastewater operations. She not only provides identification of the microorganisms, but describes their effects and functions in the operation of the treatment system. I would highly recommend this book to any professional in the wastewater industry.

    The Role of Microbiologist in Wastewater Treatment

    This book by medical microbiologist Toni Glymph is a labor of love for providing actual photographs of microorganisms in aerobic wastewater treatment. Thus the operators will know how well is their system performing by actual comparison.
