Co-published by The Water Environment Federation
Based on the Water Environment Federation's (WEF) MOP 8, Design of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants, Wastewater Treatment Plant Design packages the most important design principles and professional experience in wastewater engineering into a useful and organized textbook.
Written by world leading experts, the primary purpose of this book is to provide an educational tool for the instructor in assisting students to better learn the theory and practice of wastewater treatment. The book will also be useful for practicing engineers responsible for the planning and design of wastewater treatment facilities.
This book is intended for a professional audience, and the assumption is that students using this book have a prior knowledge of basic environmental engineering and fluid mechanics or hydraulics.
Wastewater Treatment Plant Design has a wealth of practical design information, as originally collected in the WEF Manual of Practice. Real life design experience is coupled with contemporary theory to produce a book that will have not only immediate value to students and practitioners, but will remain current and useful for years to come.
