MWH's Water Treatment Principles and Design, Third Edition
This one-stop resource has everything you need to know about theory, design, and practical applications for all water treatment processes. You'll find all the information you need about filter design, coagulation, mixing, flocculation, air stripping, and water softening.
You'll find treatment strategies for pathogenic microbes, all types of organic and inorganic matter, nuisance organisms, tastes, colors, and odors. You'll also find how to treat for arsenic, radionuclides, calcium, and other less common constituents. In addition, you'll find everything you need on water quality, water chemistry, disinfection, federal water quality regulations, corrosion control, disinfection by-products, and residuals management.
All chapters have been updated, with new information on advanced oxidation, enhanced coagulation, adsorption, membrane treatment of impaired water sources, and pharmaceuticals, and student exercises in assembling treatment trains. Ideal as a classroom text, the book includes problems, discussion topics, and references at the end of each chapter.
