Summary This book is divided into three sections: the first reviews the main processes available for treating water for drinking (potable) purposes, the second goes into some detail about the design and operation of the non-filtration (clarification) processes, and the third deals exclusively with filtration and related applications. It is intended as a source of practical information rather than a theoretical research treatise and includes discussion of component parts of the process units with reasons for design features as well as operating principles. This book fills a gap between general reviews and research papers, and contains much information which is based on experience passed down within organisations and which tends not to be published
