Summary "In Water Works Engineering, water quality professionals present the state-of-the-art in water treatment facility design - and offer 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." "Water Works Engineering is essential reading for all professionals in the field: consulting engineers, equipment manufacturers, and regulatory professionals alike."--BOOK JACKET
