Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water

Buy

This sixth edition of Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water serves as a handbook for scientists, engineers, and other professionals who study and work in drinking water—particularly the quality of water supplies, the quality of treated drinking water, and water treatment processes. It is meant as a resource for those in academics (professors and students), consulting engineering practice, water utilities, federal and state regulatory agencies, and the water process and chemical industries. The book emphasizes principles (theory) and applications (practice). It serves as a companion to the book on design, AWWA-ASCE, Water Treatment Plant Design (the fifth edition is in preparation, with expected publication in late 2011).

This book is an activity of the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA’s) Water Quality and Technology Division (WQTD). James K. Edzwald served as the technical editor and worked with the authors of the chapters in preparing the book. An ad hoc committeeof the WQTD consisting of James P. Malley, Jr., Marilyn M. Marshall, and Dixie Fanning provided advice to the technical editor throughout the preparation of this book.

We can ask heretical questions such as why OOP should be used in all programming situations as many of its proponents insist. We can question the wisdom of allowing C programmers to write the narratives and code examples for the Help system in VB.NET. We can wonder why structures are included in VB.NET if OOP experts insist that you should...
