Contents Notes
The microbial world -- Microbial metabolism and growth -- Role of microorganisms in biogeochemical cycles -- Pathogens and parasites in domestic wastewater -- Microbial indicators of fecal contamination -- Water and wastewater disinfection -- Introduction to wastewater treatment -- Activated sludge process -- Bulking and foaming in activated sludge plants -- Processes based on attached microbial growth -- Waste stabilizations ponds -- Sludge microbiology -- Anaerobic digestion of wastewater and biosolids -- Bioaerosols and bioodors from wastewater treatment plants -- Microbiological aspects of drinking water treatment -- Microbiological aspects of drinking water distribution -- Bioterrorism and drinking water safety -- Pollution control biotechnology -- Fate of xenobiotics and toxic metals in wastewater treatment plants -- Toxicity testing in wastewater treatment plants using microorganisms -- Public health aspects of wastewater and biosolids disposal on land -- Public health aspects of wastewater and biosolids disposal in the marine environment. "The Third Edition of this classic reference provides readers with concise, up-to-the-moment coverage of the role of microorganisms in water and wastewater treatment. By providing a solid foundation in microbiology microbial growth, metabolism, and nutrient cycling, the text gives readers the tools they need to make critical decisions that affect public health, as well as the practical aspects of treatment, disinfection, water distribution, bioremediation, and water wastewater reuse." "The publication begins a discussion of microbiology principles, followed by a discussion of public health issues and concerns. Next, the core of the text is dedicated to a thorough examination of wastewater and drinker water treatment, biosolids, pollution-control biotechnology, and drinking water distribution. The remainder of the text discusses toxicity testing in wastewater treatment plants, and the public health aspects of wastewater disposal and reuse." "New problem sets, which test reader' knowledge, as well as a list of Internet resources have been added to each chapter. In addition, the publication's extensive references have been thoroughly revised for readers who would like to learn more about the latest findings and discoveries on specialized topics. Finally, the color plate section has been expanded and contains many new illustrations and tables." "An authoritative guide for all researchers, administrators, and engineers in the field of microbiology, Wastewater Microbiology, Third Edition is also a valuable reference for civil and environmental engineers, public health officials, and students involved in environmental engineering and science."--Jacket.
