  • Math Handbook for Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators

    Wastewater treatment plant operators use mathematics to make key process decisions. It is important for the operator to have an understanding of math fundamentals along with the technical concepts of wastewater treatment plant operation. By reviewing the math principles presented in this text and linking these principles to wastewater treatment ...

  • Natural Wastewater Treatment Systems, Second Edition

    This new edition examines all changes and advancements that have taken place since the previous edition published in 2005. It outlines the planning, feasibility assessment, and site selection processes unique to natural processes as well as the basic process responses and interactions governing natural systems. It examines the systems in detail, ...

  • Flocculation in Natural and Engineered Environmental Systems

    Flocculation is a dominant process in aquatic environments, fundamental to water and wastewater treatment systems. Environmental and economic consequences of flocculation include sedimentation and contaminant transport, which can bring about habitat destructions and affect human health via deterioration of source waters. Understanding the ...

  • Fate of Pharmaceuticals in the Environment and in Water Treatment Systems

    Found in concentrations at the parts-per-trillion or low parts-per-billion, the detection of pharmaceutical residues remained elusive until instruments such as liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry became commonplace in environmental laboratories. As a result, the occurrence of pharmaceutical residues and endocrine disrupting chemicals in water ...
