Overview

Wastewater Microbiology focuses on microbial contaminants found in wastewater, methods of detection for these contaminants, and methods of cleansing water of microbial contamination. This classic reference has now been updated to focus more exclusively on issues particular to wastewater, with new information on fecal contamination and new molecular methods. The book features new methods to determine cell viability/activity in environmental samples; a new section on bacterial spores as indicators; new information covering disinfection byproducts, UV disinfection, and photoreactivation; and much more. A PowerPoint of figures from the book is available at ftp://ftp.wiley.com/public/sci_tech_med/wastewater_microbiology.

"Drawing from the recent discoveries in engineering and microbiology, the book covers treatment, disinfection, and remediation...part of the Wiley Series in Ecological and Applied Microbiology."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is suitable as a textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in environmental sciences and environmental engineering programs, and as a reference for practitioners." (Booknews, 1 February 2011)
Booknews
A text-reference that presents a comprehensive exploration of the interface between engineering and microbiology, for both students and professionals. It provides an assessment of the biotic aspects of wastewater and the various treatment methods available. It proceeds from the fundamentals of microbial biology, metabolism, and ecology, through discussions of process microbiology and biotransformations, to a detailed analysis of the epidemiological factors and public health risks associated with wastewater. The emphasis is on the practical issues of treatment, disinfection, and remediation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
