It features updated appraisals of everything from aeration and coagulation processes, to chemical oxidation and water plant waste management. Whether the topic is the health and aesthetic aspects of water quality, or the latest details on effective control of microbia, you can't find a more in-depth-or more critical-guide to water supply treatment than the one you're holding right now.
