Fully revised and extensively updated to take account of current water quality standards and treatment technologies, this book provides a concise and readable overview, written in a clear and direct style. Written by three of the worlds leading experts in the field of water treatment, with a Foreword by the Chief Inspector DWI, the book remains the definitive reference for all those involved in water treatment systems. This new edition presents more than just the basics of water treatment, providing the theoretical support necessary for the student and specialist. The book discusses the main water quality parameters that drive the need for water treatment, and there is also extensive data on water quality standards. The scope of the book has been extended to cover advanced water treatment processes, but it has also been updated for the traditional water treatment processes of coagulation, clarification and filtration. New processes considered include: carbon adsorption, membrane processes, ozonation, and ion exchange. The coverage of disinfection has been expanded, and includes alternative disinfectants, and the treatment and disposal of waste streams is covered.

A chapter on water demands completes the main body of text. Appendices include examples of worked calculations, a glossary, and a comparison of EU, USA and WHO water quality standards. "Basic Water Treatment, 3rd Edition" is an essential purchase for water engineers at all levels - a textbook for the student, a handbook for the engineer or chemist, but essentially an indispensable guide full of useful practical information for the established practitioner.
