Handbook of Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations

Handbook of Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations Lowest new price: $30.01
Lowest used price: $34.97
List price: $124.95
Author: Frank R. Spellman

Water and wastewater treatment plant operators must have a breadth of knowledge that encompasses more than scientific theory. They need to be generalists with knowledge bridging several scientific, academic, and engineering disciplines. Unfortunately, until now, many of the existing texts in the field were too limited in scope and narrow in focus.

Handbook of Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations is the first complete resource manual exclusively for water and wastewater plant operators. It is a thorough compilation of water science, treatment information, process control procedures, problem-solving techniques, safety and health information, and administrative and technological trends. The manual examines numerous real-world operating scenarios, including the intake of raw sewage and the treatment of water via residual management.

Each scenario includes a comprehensive problem-solving practice set, which enables readers to integrate relevant math with theory and practical applications. The systematic layout of this hands-on technical aid accelerates the learning of both current and future plant operators.

Author: Joseph Jenkins
Brand: Brand: Jenkins Pub

The most comprehensive, up-to-date, and thoroughly researched book on the topic of composting human manure available anywhere.

Written by a humanure composter with over twenty years experience, this classic work now includes illustrated, step-by-step instructions on how to build a "$25 composting toilet." Also new to the second edition is a chapter on alternative graywater systems; color photos of humanure compost gardens; a review of U.S. state regulations pertaining to compost toilets, graywater systems, and constructed wetlands; and a list of compost toilets sources worldwide. The humor throughout the book, however, remains execrable.
