The manual comprises a compilation of information on the practice of suspended solids removal from municipal wastewaters. General engineering considerations are cited with respect to their impact on the design of treatment facilities. Specific processes used for suspended solids removal are described, discussed and illustrated through the use of data from installations which have employed these processes. Current technology and advanced methods of treatment are stressed in order to provide usable information for implementation in design of new treatment facilities. Some aspects of the operation and maintenance requirements of the described unit processes are delineated, along with the overall estimated costs of construction and operation. The information and data provided are presented in such a manner that they can be readily incorporated into practice. (Author)
