Description Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Resource Recovery, 5/e is a thorough update of McGraw-Hill's authoritative book on wastewater treatment. No environmental engineering professional or civil or environmental engineering major should be without a copy of this book - describing the rapidly evolving field of wastewater engineering technological and regulatory changes that have occurred over the last ten years in this discipline, including: a new view of a wastewater as a source of energy, nutrients and potable water; more stringent discharge requirements related to nitrogen and phosphorus; enhanced understanding of the fundamental microbiology and physiology of the microorganisms responsible for the removel of nitrogen and phosphorus and other constituents; an appreciation of the importance of the separate treatment of return flows with respect to meeting more stringent standards for nitrogen removal and opportunities for nutrient recovery; increased emphasis on the treatment of sludge and the management of biosolids; increased awareness of carbon footprints impacts and greenhouse gas emissions, and an emphasis on the development of energy neutral or energy positive wastewater plants through more efficient use of chemical and heat energy in wastewater.
This revision contains a strong focus on advanced wastewater treatment technologies and stresses the reuse aspects of wastewater and biosolids.
NEW Chapter 15 on treatment of plant recycle flows including chemical precipitation of colloidal materials and phosphorus recovery.
NEW Chapter 16 on control of air emissions and other operational issues encompassing odor management and greenhouse gas emissions.
New Chapter 17 on energy considerations in wastewater management including the sources of energy in wastewater.
NEW Chapter 18 on future challenges and opportunities including the impact of population dempgraphics, climate change, uncontrollable events and unintended consequences.
Over 850 individual illustrations, graphs, diagrams, and photographs are included to illustrate the principles and facilities involved in the field of wastewater management. An additional 120 drawings are included in tables.
International System (SI) of Units is used in the fifth edition, reflecting the global approach to wastewater engineering. The use of SI units is consistent with teaching practice in most US universities and in most countries throughout the world.
More than 375 homework problems and discussion topics are included to help readers of this textbook hone their analytical skills and enhance their mastery of the material. Extensive references are also provided for each chapter.
More than 400 data tables, most of which are new, are summarized and presented to aid in the planning, analysis, and design of wastewater management systems.
