Disinfection By-products In Water Treatment
Disinfection By-Products in Water Treatment describes new government regulations related to disinfection by-products. It explains the formation of microorganism by-products during water treatment and the methods employed to control them.
The book includes several chapters on chlorine by-products and discusses techniques for the removal of chloroform from drinking water. It also describes gamma radiation techniques for removing microorganic by-product precursors from natural waters and the removal of bromate from drinking water.
Water Quality & Treatment
Updated throughout and featuring five new chapters, this is the leading source of information on water quality, water treatment, and quality control
Authoritative, comprehensive, and co-written by more than 20 expert specialists, the Sixth Edition of "Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water" covers state-of-the-art technologies, methods in water treatment, and overall quality. This is the all-in-one source for basics of water quality, from the rationale for low water-quality standards and goals to the assessment of coastal flooding and other hazards. There is no more complete, in-depth--or more critical--guide to water supply treatment available.
"Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water, Sixth Edition" features: Five new chapters: 1. Hydraulic Characteristics of Reactors and Processes; 2. UV Technologies; 3. Natural Treatment Systems; 4. Water Reuse; 5. Formation and Control of Disinfection By-Products New appendices SI units throughout
Comprehensive coverage of water quality and treatment:
Drinking Water Quality Standards, Regulations, and Goals; Health and Aesthetic Aspects of Drinking Water; Source Water Quality Composition and Protection; Hydraulic Characteristics of Reactors and Processes; Overview of Water Treatment Processes; Gas Transfer: Principles and Applications; Chemical Oxidation; Coagulation and Focculation; Sedimentation and Flotation; Granular Bed and Precoat Filtration; Membrane Processes; Ion Exchange and Adsorption of Inorganic Contaminants; Precipitation, Coprecipitation, and Precipitative Softening; Adsorption of Organic Compounds; Natural Treatment Systems; Water Reuse for Drinking Water Augmentation; Chemical Disinfection; UV Technologies; Formation and Control or Disinfection By-Products; Internal Corrosion and Deposition Control; Microbiology Quality Control in Distribution Systems; Water Treatment Residuals Management
Physical-chemical Treatment Of Water And Wastewater
The books currently available on this subject contain some elements of physical-chemical treatment of water and wastewater but fall short of giving comprehensive and authoritative coverage. They contain some equations that are not substantiated, offering empirical data based on assumptions that are therefore difficult to comprehend. This text brings together the information previously scattered in several books and adds the knowledge from the author's lectures on wastewater engineering.
Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater is not only descriptive but is also analytical in nature. The work covers the physical unit operations and unit processes utilized in the treatment of water and wastewater. Its organization is designed to match the major processes and its approach is mathematical. The authors stress the description and derivation of processes and process parameters in mathematical terms, which can then be generalized into diverse empirical situations. Each chapter includes design equations, definitions of symbols, a glossary of terms, and worked examples.
One author is an environmental engineer and a professor for over 12 years and the other has been in the practice of environmental engineering for more than 20 years. They offer a sound analytical mathematical foundation and description of processes. Physical-Chemical Treatment of Water and Wastewater fills a niche as the only dedicated textbook in the area of physical and chemical methods, providing an analytical approach applicable to a range of empirical situations
