Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This text provides the most current and comprehensive coverage available of the ever-evolving field of Wastewater Treatment. Droste explores the broad spectrum of technologies used in practice today, ranging from commonly-used standards to the latest state of the art innovations that are absent from most existing texts. Both theory and design concepts are developed systematically, combined in a unified way, and are fully supported by comprehensive, illustrative examples.

In this environment Student Text focuses on the mechanics of the processes used for the treatment of water or wastewater. Processes are grouped according to the theoretical principles in place of their appearance in Operations wastewater treatment or water . The Essentials For Design and Evaluation Procedures Treatment information is included in the first sections . Basic theory Majority treatment processes is presented later in the book, with more emphasis on Most Common Applications . Formulas are described in detail , and reuniting with references given at the end of each chapter for readers who wish to broaden their knowledge.

Reviews provided by Syndetics


Droste focuses on the processes employed in the treatment of wastewater; he starts with a review of the basic biological, chemical, and physical principles of these processes and progresses through the various unit treatments for wastewater and for processing and disposal of the residues from these processes. He also presents the techniques for measuring the various contaminants associated with wastewater. The presentation of the different topics is relatively uniform; none is discussed in great depth. Other sections review principles relative to the various processes discussed later in the text. It is assumed that the reader has had introductory courses in the basic sciences. Discussion of the unit processes is limited to a general discussion of the design parameters employed. In-depth discussions of the theory of these processes are not provided, as it would be impossible to do so in one volume. In general, a balanced presentation. Upper-division undergraduates. J. T.
