Overview

Water treatment plants: planning, design, and operations—in depth.

  • The in-depth, start-to-finish guide to water treatment planning, design, and operations
  • Easy-to-apply design criteria, procedures, and concepts
  • Units layout, yard pipings, hydraulic profile, instrumentation, control, and more
  • Equipment specification, selection, and maintenance

In Water Works Engineering, a team of leading water quality professionals present the state-of-the-art in water treatment facility design-and offer thorough, end-to-end guidance for successful planning, design, and operations.

The authors begin by introducing the latest advances in water treatment technology, and key future trends. They review each key constituent of water quality and its health significance, as well as today's best unit operations and water treatment processes. Next, they walk step-by-step through water treatment planning and design, including predesign reports, problem definition, and site selection. Coverage includes:

  • Raw water intake, screening, and aeration
  • Conveyance, flow measurement, and pumping
  • Coagulation, flocculation, precipitation, sedimentation, filtration, disinfection, and fluoridation
  • Complete process trains demonstrating the interrelationships amongst key processes
  • Practical, real-world techniques for selecting equipment and manufacturers
  • Nonconventional treatment processes: removing specific constituents that conventional treatment leaves behind

The authors provide detailed coverage of aesthetic issues such as color, taste, and odor control; today's best techniques for residuals management; practical guidance on instrumentation and control; a troubleshooting guide for avoiding key design errors, and more. Water Works Engineering is essential reading for all professionals in the field: consulting engineers, equipment manufacturers, and regulatory professionals alike.
