Back cover copy

By A bestselling author team--the must-have reference on water treatment principles for students From the same distinguished author team that brought you the bestselling reference Water Treatment comes this new offering for students wishing to gain a solid understanding of the latest developments in water treatment processes. It maintains the same quality writing, illustrations, and worked examples as the author team's larger Water Treatment but does so in a more digestible and specifically focused format. It covers conventional processes like coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration--but unlike any other water treatment book of this size, it gives equal coverage to advanced technologies like adsorption, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and advanced oxidation. Complete with example problems, chapter summaries, end-of-chapter review questions, and access to a solutions manual online, Principles of Water Treatment provides all of the tools necessary for a civil or environmental engineering or water resources student to launch a successful and rewarding more
