Summary "This book provides a practical guide to improving the performance of water treatment plants. The principles and ideas presented have been shown to be effective in increasing the capacity of water treatment plants and improving the quality of the effluent water, and are based on extensive experience in upgrading a variety of treatment plants throughout the world. The procedures proposed apply not only to the optimization of existing treatment plants but also to the design of new ones."
