AWWA-10008 Water Quality and Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water, Sixth Edition


AWWA Water Quality and Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water, Sixth Edition, covers all aspects of drinking water supply: state-of-the-art technologies; water quality from source to tap, conventional and advanced methods and processes in water treatment, and drinking water standards and regulations. Authoritative, comprehensive, and written by experts, Water Quality & Treatment: A Handbook on Drinking Water has been the essential reference for municipal water supply professionals for decades. The sixth edition covers more topics than ever and goes deeper into every topic, making it the most useful edition yet. It is truly a one-volume reference. Importantly, it emphasizes principles (theory) and applications (practice), making it as useful for the academician as the practitioner.

What’s new in the 6th edition?
The sixth edition contains five all-new chapters: natural treatment systems, water reuse, hydraulics, ultraviolet radiation, and disinfection by-products. A sixth chapter, Chapter 3, Chemical Principles, Source Water Composition, and Watershed Protection, replaces one from the 5th edition on source water quality management, and it is essentially another new chapter in that it contains new material on chemical principles and additional material on source water quality. All chapters have been extensively revised and updated.
