Basic Water Treatment, 5th edition


Basic Water Treatment is an essential reference on all aspects of potable water quality and treatment, providing the theoretical principles and practical details of widely-used treatment processes.

This accessible introduction and practical guide focuses on the issues of most interest to practising engineers, summarising the key issues and criteria in short and accessible sections, with additional theory to explain and support the treatment processes considered. Updated and expanded to include additional processes, topics and developing concerns, such as enhanced coagulation, ceramic membranes, ion exchange, contact tank design, chemicals associated with contraceptives and the carbon footprint of water supply, the fifth edition includes a new chapter on sizing of water treatment plants and details the different approaches taken to the ownership, regulation and institutional structures of water supply across the British Isles.

Basic Water Treatment is an essential resource for water engineers at all levels – a textbook for students, a handbook for engineers or chemists who are new to the industry, and an indispensable guide full of updated practical information for the established practitioner.
