handle and dispose of water treatment residual wastes using this
handy operator field guide.
Water Treatment Plant Residuals Pocket Field Guide provides all the day-to-day operational guidance water operators need on the proper handling and disposal of water treatment residuals. The booklet provides information on regulations, types of wastes, dewatering processes, and other residual waste issues in conventional filter plants, as well as precipitative water softening plants. Water treatment residuals handling too often becomes an afterthought for operators, but residuals handling is an important unit process. Improperly handled residuals can affect the time and frequency of filter operations and may even delay the ability to wash filters.
