Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Reuse, 4/e is an update of McGraw-Hill's popular book on wastewater treatment for civil and environmental engineering majors.
Theory and design issues are now integrated in the chapters on physical, chemical, and biological operations and processes. Combining this material presents a more unified approach to the subjects, and eliminates redundancies that appeared in the third edition. Chapters covering the theory and design of biological treatment systems have been expanded significantly.
SI units are now the lead units, reflecting the global approach to wastewater engineering as it is taught in universities and presented in technical journals. This change addresses the volume of work being done by US consultants overseas, and supports the needs of engineering professionals outside the US for a comprehensive reference source.
This edition retains the strengths of the previous edition by including many data tables. Data tables have been thoroughly updated, and approximately 40 new data tables have been added. Several new design examples have been added, reflecting the technological changes in process design that have occurred. Many new photos of facilities and equipment are included as well.
This is the bible of wastewater engineering. No civil or environmental engineering majors or environmental engineering professional should be without this book on his or her shelf.
