Manual on the Causes and Control of Activated Sludge Bulking, Foaming, and Other Solids Separation Problems, 3rd Edition

Manual on the Causes and Control of Activated Sludge Bulking, Foaming, and Other Solids Separation Problems, 3rd Edition Lowest new price: $115.27
Lowest used price: $115.50
List price: $140.00
Author: David Jenkins

The most common activated sludge operating problems causing poor plant performance are related to solids separation. Especially common are bulking and foaming. Without a proper scientific foundation to support the efforts of wastewater treatment plant management, many attempts to thwart bulking and foaming have failed.

Manual on Solving Activated Sludge Bulking, Foaming, and Other Solids Separation Problems provides the critical scientific and practical underpinnings needed to understand and combat these problems. The third edition of this flagship text is a comprehensive, concise guide to the microbiological and technical aspects of controlling all types of solid separation problems.

The scientific theory is applied to real-world scenarios, greatly increasing the number of real-world examples of successful control methods. New information is also included on filamentous organism growth and its application in the control of sludge bulking and foaming. Now plant operators, regulators and wastewater engineers have a complete guide for battling these formidable design and operating problems.

Author: Mackenzie Davis

Water and Wastewater Engineering integrates theory and design. Fundamental environmental engineering principles are used as the foundation for rigorous design of conventional and advanced water and wastewater treatment processes. Reverse osmosis, membrane filtration, UV disinfection, biological nutrient removal and membrane bioreactors represent a small sample of the processes included.

Water and Wastewater Engineering follows the flow of water through a water treatment plant and the flow of wastewater through a wastewater treatment plant. The design of unit water treatment processes includes coagulation/flocculation, softening, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, sedimentation, granular filtration, membrane filtration, disinfection, and residuals management. In a similar fashion, the design of unit wastewater processes follows the flow of wastewater through a plant. The design of unit wastewater treatment processes includes preliminary treatment, primary treatment, suspended growth secondary treatment including biological nutrient removal, and membrane biological reactors. Residuals management includes applicable methods to meet the 503 rules. The text includes include appropriate regulatory constraints and highlights safety issues. Hints from the field bring to the student real-life experience in solving technical issues.

Floodpath: The Deadliest Man-Made Disaster of 20th-Century America and the Making of Modern Los Angeles

Floodpath: The Deadliest Man-Made Disaster of 20th-Century America and the Making of Modern Los Angeles Lowest new price: $11.67
Lowest used price: $6.76
List price: $19.00
Author: Jon Wilkman

"Floodpath attempts to rescue the disaster from obscurity . . . The author captures many heartbreaking stories of survivors . . . The effect is powerful." --The Wall Street Journal

Just before midnight on March 12, 1928, the St. Francis Dam, a twenty-story-high concrete structure just fifty miles north of Los Angeles, suddenly collapsed, releasing a devastating flood that roared fifty-four miles to the Pacific Ocean, destroying everything in its path. It was a horrific catastrophe, yet one which today is virtually forgotten.

With research gathered over more than two decades, award-winning writer and filmmaker Jon Wilkman revisits the deluge that claimed nearly five hundred lives. A key figure is William Mulholland, the self-taught engineer who created an unprecedented water system, allowing Los Angeles to become America's second largest city, and who was also responsible for the design and construction of the St. Francis Dam.

Driven by eyewitness accounts and combining urban history with a life-and-death drama and a technological detective story, Floodpath grippingly reanimates the reality behind L.A. noir fictions like the classic film Chinatown. In an era of climate change, increasing demand on water resources, and a neglected American infrastructure, the tragedy of the St. Francis Dam has never been more relevant.

An Amazon Best Book of January 2016: How does a man-made disaster that killed 500 innocents near a burgeoning metropolis become a historical footnote? In 1928, the St. Francis dam, part of William Mulholland’s ambitious plan to siphon water to young Los Angeles, suddenly disintegrated, releasing a wall of water that obliterated everything in its path. The story has been told before, but Jon Wilkman is the first to separate the disaster from its larger, triumphant context. Floodpath applies Wilkman’s skills as an award-winning documentarian, collecting first-hand accounts, contemporary reporting, and interviews with Mullholland’s descendants--while eschewing the dramatic speculation that pads much recent “narrative nonfiction”--to produce a factual-yet-compelling account that still resonates today. --Jon Foro
