The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced today the publication of the sixth edition of Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water. Authoritative, comprehensive, and co-written by expert specialists, the sixth edition is the most complete one-volume reference ever produced on potable water quality and treatment.
Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water covers all aspects of drinking water supply: state-of-the-art technologies; water quality from source to tap, conventional and advanced methods and processes in water treatment, and drinking water standards and regulations.
The new edition contains five all-new chapters: natural treatment systems, water reuse, hydraulics, ultraviolet radiation, and disinfection by-products. In addition, all other chapters have been extensively revised and updated, or replaced. Four new appendices also provide quick references for atomic numbers and masses, physical and chemical constants, unit conversion factors, and the physical properties of water.
Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water is the essential technical resource for water professionals in academics; consulting engineering practice; water utilities; federal and state regulatory agencies; and the water process and chemical industries.
The sixth edition of Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water is available in AWWA’s online bookstore at http://apps.awwa.org/ebusmain/OnlineStore/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductId=6292.
