Fully updated for the latest regulations and standards, the second edition of this renowned Water Environment Federation book provides students and practicing engineers with authoritative information on state-of-the art facility design and treatment processes.

The text addresses the challenges of the design engineer's job--to incorporate new technology and innovations while producing a facility that will perform as expected under variable and unpredictable loadings. Introduction to Water Resource Recovery Facility Design, Second Edition, also offers guidance on designing facilities with the flexibility to allow modifications to meet more-stringent treatment requirements as environmental regulations evolve.

Comprehensive coverage includes:

  • The design process
  • Hydraulics
  • Preliminary treatment
  • Primary treatment
  • Suspended-growth biological treatment
  • Attached-growth biological treatment
  • Biological nutrient removal
  • Natural treatment systems
  • Physical and chemical processes
  • Ancillary processes
  • Production and transport of wastewater solids
