Practical Wastewater Treatment
by David L. Russell

Practical Wastewater Treatment equips readers with the skills and knowledge needed to design a wastewater treatment plant and handle various types of industrial wastes.

Features:

  • Examples and worked problems throughout the manual demonstrate how various treatment plants and treatment techniques work
  • Figures and diagrams help readers visualize and understand complex design issues
  • References as well as links to online resources serve as a gateway to additional information
  • Practical design hints, stemming from the author's extensive experience, help readers save time and avoid unwanted and expensive pitfalls
  • Clear and logically organized presentation has been developed and refined based on an AIChE course taught by the author in the United States, Mexico, and Venezuela
