Book Description

Wastewater Treatment is another indispensable work from the author of Water Treatment. Both books are helpful tools for crisis identification and, most importantly, resolution. Tillman writes in a concise, well organized format - perfect for fast reference.
This operator's guide presents basic troubleshooting and problem solving information for typical problems that can occur during the operation of processes used at municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. Common problems and the recommended operator responses are listed in tabular form for individual unit processes. Entry level operators will benefit greatly from the problems Tillman addresses, while experienced operators will appreciate it as a handy reference.
The information compiled in this volume has been collected from various equipment manfacturers' operation and maintenance manuals, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) technology transfer documents, the authors personal experience as a plant Operations and Maintenance manual writer, and his experience as a plant manager and operator. He includes only the most common wastewater treatment unit processes. He gives an overview of the treatment objective of the unit process, and then provides each with a troubleshooting table divided into Indicators/Observations: Possible Cause; Check or Monitor; Possible Solutions columns.
Wastewater Treatment reads like the best of training manuals. Tillman's know-how, combined with his clarity, make this book required occupational reading. The brief, straightforward format and easy-to-read tables make the guide an accessible problem solving reference.
