REFER TO THE BEST NEW PLANNING, DESIGN, AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS FOR TODAY'S WATER TREATMENT FACILITIES

This classic reference -- the bible of the field since 1939 -- has been completely updated for this new Fourth Edition, with typically unsurpassed coverage of water treatment plant design topics. Let a team of water treatment plant design experts -- more than 40 international authorities -- give you comprehensive guidance on modernizing existing water treatment facilities and planning new ones -- from initial plans and permits through design, construction, and start-up.

In addition, you'll learn about the latest U.S. EPA regulations and about flexible design that can meet anticipated requirements, and find a wealth of information on instrumentation and control and structural, electrical, and design reliability developments -- plus updates on water treatment methods such as aeration, coagulation, flocculation, clarification, filtration, oxidation, and disinfection.

This outstanding reference gives you state-of-the-art coverage of:

  • Environmental impact and project permitting
  • Site selection
  • Master planning and treatment process selection
  • Ion exchange
  • Membrane processes
  • Hydraulics
  • Architecture
  • Pilot plant design
  • Construction costs
  • Operations and maintenance
  • And more!

NEW!

  • UV technology
  • Antisabotage and vandalism measures
  • Codes, regulations, and standards
