Read from the Book

Preface The Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1986 are the most sweeping legislative changes in the history of the public water supply field and will have more of an impact than the original act passed over two decades ago. These legislative changes reflect a perception by Congress that there is a great amount of public anxiety over the quality of our drinking water, as well as frustration with the manner in which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) enforced the requirements of the original act. Practicing engineers and utility managers who are involved with the planning, design, and operation of water treatment plants must begin to evaluate current options and anticipate what lies ahead. At the present time, many programs in civil and environmental engineering at numerous universities are offering courses in the area of water treatment plant design. Several excellent books have been written in recent years that present theory and principles of water treatment processes. The authors have observed during their years of experience in the water treatment field that no publication has been devoted entirely to water works engineering planning, design, and operation. The intent of the authors in developing this book is twofold: first, to consolidate the developments in design of water works engineering that have evolved as a result of technological advancement in the field and of the concepts and policies promulgated by the environmental laws and the subsequent gui

From the Jacket

Water treatment plants: planning, design, and operations—in depth.

  • The in-depth, start-to-finish guide to water treatment planning, design, and operations
  • Easy-to-apply design criteria, procedures, and concepts
  • Units layout, yard pipings, hydraulic profile, instrumentation, control, and more
  • Equipment specification, selection, and maintenance

In Water Works Engineering, a team of leading water quality professionals present the state-of-the-art in water treatment facility design-and offer thorough, end-to-end guidance for successful planning, design, and operations.

The authors begin by introducing the latest advances in water treatment technology, and key future trends. They review each key constituent of water quality and its health significance, as well as today''s best unit operations and water treatment processes. Next, they walk step-by-step through water treatment planning and design, including predesign reports, problem definition, and site selection. Coverage includes:

  • Raw water intake, screening, and aeration
  • Conveyance, flow measurement, and pumping
  • Coagulation, flocculation, precipitation, sedimentation, filtration, disinfection, and fluoridation
  • Complete process trains demonstrating the interrelationships amongst key processes
  • Practical, real-world techniques for selecting equipment and manufacturers
  • Nonconventional treatment processes: removing specific constituents that conventional treatment leaves behind

The authors provide detailed coverage of aesthetic issues such as color, taste, and odor control; today''s best techniques for residuals management; practical guidance on instrumentation and control; a troubleshooting guide for avoiding key design errors, and more. Water Works Engineering is essential reading for all professionals in the field: consulting engineers, equipment manufacturers, and regulatory professionals alike.
