A textbook carefully designed to balance coverage of theoretical and practical principles, Fundamentals of Water Treatment Unit Processes: Physical, Chemical, and Biological delineates the principles that support practice, using the unit processes approach as the organizing concept.



• Discusses groundwater hydrology and the basic laws of groundwater movement • Presents the technical aspects of developing and solving groundwater flow equations • Describes environmental water quality issues related to groundwater systems • Examines the details of groundwater flow modeling • Introduces conceptual models to simulate groundwater systems • Supplies basic information about the conjunctive use of surface and groundwater • Highlights aquifer restoration • Delineates the impact of climate change on the hydrological cycle

• 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

Selected Contents:

Since technologies change but principles remain constant, the book identifies strands of theory instead of discussing the latest technologies. It gives a thorough treatment of the basic principles that students will later put to use on the job. The book does more than build technical proficiency; it also adds insight and understanding to the broader aspects of water treatment unit processes.
