Description

Presenting not only the basics of water treatment, but also the theoretical support necessary for the student and specialist, this third edition discusses the main water quality parameters that drive the need for water treatment and includes extensive data on water quality standards. The scope of the book has been extended to include advanced water treatment processes, and the sections on coagulation, clarification and filtration have been updated. Processes such as carbon absorption and membrane processes are considered, and the coverage of disinfection has been expanded to include alternative disinfectants. Treatment and disposal of waste streams and water demands are also discussed. Examples of worked calculations, a glossary and a comparison of EU, USA and WHO water quality standards are included in the appendices.
