Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes Physical, Chemical, and Biological David Hendricks Colorado State University, Fort Collins, USA

Carefully designed to balance coverage of theoretical and practical principles, this textbook delineates the principles that support practice, using the unit processes approach as the organizing concept. Since technologies change but principles remain constant, the author identifies strands of theory rather than discusses the latest technologies, giving students a clear understanding of basic principles. With chapter glossaries, sidebars, illustrative examples, spreadsheet tables, problems, and a solutions manual, this book offers a complete presentation of the full scope of biological treatment. • Covers unit processes common to drinking water, wastewater, and any water requiring treatment • Presents theory and practice for each unit process and key factors in development • Examines uncommon issues that aid in applications principles, such as submerged flow for a Parshall flume and Henry’s law constants for 12 gases at different temperatures • Reviews how the field arrived at its present state-of-the-art technologies to shed light on current practices A solutions manual is available upon qualifying course adoption
