· Wastewater technologies and math presented in basic, understandable terms · Clear, full explanations of unit processes from screening to activated sludge · Math review focused on wastewater plant and licensure test calculations · Questions and quizzes designed for exam preparation · Numerous drawings and solved problems illustrating key ideas This book gives plant operators and students of wastewater a simple and math-based introduction to all major unit processes in the modern wastewater treatment plant.Written with plant personnel in mind, the book furnishes easy-to-understand explanations of each step in treating wastewater--from screening, through sedimentation and settling, to activated sludge. The work is designed for operators and managers to run plants and to advance their careers by passing state licensure exams. Sample questions and problems in the text have been selected to prepare for operator examinations. Each chapter of the book is devoted to fully clarifying a unit process, and includes sample questions and problems. The book opens with a review of math, as this is applied to wastewater calculations. Many sample problems throughout give the reader an opportunity to practice and apply math formulas in realistic wastewater situations. Step-by-step descriptions of math problems show the reader how to arrive at the correct answer. Many practical tips and sample quizzes are furnished to help operators studying on their own and in courses. Written in a readable, non-technical style, this text is designed to explain wastewater technologies using down-to-earth approaches comprehensible to students. At the same time, it provides complete definitions of the key technical terms a wastewater operator needs to know

This book focuses on 21 case studies (10 waterborne disease outbreaks, 7 cases of severe chemical contamination and 4 close calls) that are written, as far as the publicly accessible evidence allows, from the perspective of front-line personnel. The intent of this book is to create a story line for each case that will allow front line personnel to imagine themselves in these circumstances and to consider how those things that failed could be relevant to them for assuring the safety of their own system.

AWWA's most popular handbook for distribution operator personnel is an indispensable reference for operators and supervisors alike on water distribution system operation and equipment. This fourth edition is based on the operator certification knowledge requirements included in the Associated Boards of Certification (ABC) Need-To-Know criteria, as well as that of several state certification boards (e.g. California, Pennsylvania, and Texas). Several new chapters cover topics that have emerged since the publication of the last edition, and others, including the regulatory overview chapter, were revised extensively. New chapters describe the management approach to distribution system operation and the operational practices operators can use to improve system performance. The disinfection of pipelines and storage facilities is now included as its own chapter. And the math calculations that distribution system operators need to know are included as concrete examples of what operators need to know.

Lumpy Water Math was written to help wastewater treatment plant operators and collection system operators with the basic problem solving ability needed to evaluate and control these systems. This understanding will help the operator use math in day-to day operation as well as help prepare for certification exams. The math will be helpful to water supply and distribution system operators as the math used is basically the same.The instruction begins with basic instruction in solving for areas and volumes, detention time, flow calculations, hydraulic and organic loading and progresses to specialty areas such as activated sludge and laboratory calculations. The book includes tips for making problem solving and use of calculators easier. Typical state design standards are listed so that problem answers can be compared to accepted values. The book includes many practice problems with answers given in the appendix to help operators become proficient in basic problem solving.
