the definitive guide to the theory and practice of water treatment engineering This newly revised edition of the classic reference provides complete, up-to-date coverage of both theory and practice of water treatment system design. The Third Edition brings the field up to date, addressing new regulatory requirements, ongoing environmental concerns, and the emergence of pharmacological agents and other new chemical constituents in water. Written by some of the foremost experts in the field of public water supply, Water Treatment, Third Edition maintains the book´s broad scope and reach, while reorganizing the material for even greater clarity and readability. Topics span from the fundamentals of water chemistry and microbiology to the latest methods for detecting constituents in water, leading-edge technologies for implementing water treatment processes, and the increasingly important topic of managing residuals from water treatment plants. Along with hundreds of illustrations, photographs, and extensive tables listing chemical properties and design data, this volume: Introduces a number of new topics such as advanced oxidation and enhanced coagulation Discusses treatment strategies for removing pharmaceuticals and personal care products Examines advanced treatment technologies such as membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, and ozone addition Details reverse osmosis applications for brackish groundwater, wastewater, and other water sources Provides new case studies demonstrating the synthesis of full-scale treatment trains A must-have resource for engineers designing or operating water treatment plants, Water Treatment, Third Edition is also useful for students of civil, environmental, and water resources engineering.

The overall aim of this book is to present default values for the micro-organisms elimination or inactivation credit of universally used processes in water treatment (MEC or MIC). These MEC or MIC values have been calculated from international literature data which revealed a high variation in capacities or logremoval. The parameters and process control parameters affecting the presented capacities are described. This new edition describes the state-of-the-art progress in research on conventional treatment, coagulation and flocculation, rapid granular filtration, slow sand filtration and UV disinfection.

Water is our most essential element. Every day we drink it, bathe in it, cook with it and wash with it. What do we know about our water? Where does it come from? Is it clean? Is it healthy? Perhaps it is polluted or toxic. Perhaps what comes out of our faucet is making us sick. Perhaps we are slowly poisoning our bodies. Or perhaps not, depending upon our water source and treatment method. ´´Pure Water´´ engages all of these questions and more. Here the latest scientific discoveries about water and its many magical and healing properties are unveiled. Here the latest research on water pollutants and contamination sources are exposed. Here we discover our options for home filtration, the truth about bottled water, and the facts on water treatment. From ´´Pure Water´´ we gain clarity regarding the epidemic of dehydration, and discover how to use water to heal and feel better every day.
This book involves the use of a thermodynamic concept called exergy analysis to analyse and optimize a Multi-Stage Flash desalination plant. Two different exergy models are used as a comparison; one that uses recently updated thermodynamic properties of seawater and another that models seawater as an electrolytic solution. The contents of this book are deemed important as the exergy analysis assesses the efficiency of a system, and is a tool that will be used in future sustainable development projects where the aim is to minimize our carbon footprint by creating more efficient systems. During the analysis of the desalination plant, the location of highest exergy destruction (lowest efficiency) is determined and compared to previous similar analyses. Knowing that decisions within industry will still be based on economic factors, thermoeconomics is seen as an important tool that combines both the thermodynamic and economic factors. It´s a tool that will be used for basing future environmental decisions by policy makers. This concept is introduced with an application of the theory used on results obtained in the exergy analysis.
