Wastewater Engineering is in its fourth edition and covers the concepts pertaining to waste water treatment. The contents form an essential study for the students and professionals of Environmental and Civil Engineering. The cycle of waste water treatment over the last decade have been disclosed in this edition. It contains refined information on the various distinctions of waste water. The perceptions about the prevailing techniques in waste water treatment have been divulged in this edition. Further, the adoption of newer techniques such as biological extraction, UV disinfection etc. have also been discussed. The content has been divided into fifteen chapters and seven appendix sections. The chapters are Wastewater Engineering: An Overview, Constituents in Wastewater, Advanced Wastewater Treatment, Introduction to Process Analysis and Selection, Suspended Growth Biological Treatment Processes, Analysis and Selection of Wastewater Flow-rates and Constituent Loadings, Physical Unit Operations, Chemical Unit Processes, Fundamentals of Biological Treatment, Anaerobic Suspended and Attached Growth Biological Treatment Processes, Disinfection Processes, Water Reuse, Treatment, Attached Growth and Combined Biological Treatment Processes, Reuse, and Disposal of Solids and Biosolids, and Issues Related to Treatment-Plant Performance. The appendix section consists of Conversion Factors, Physical Properties of Water, Physical Properties of Selected Gases and the Composition of Air, Solubility of Dissolved Oxygen in Water as a Function of Salinity and Barometric Pressure, MPN Tables and Their Use, Carbonate Equilibrium and Moody Diagrams for the Analysis of Flow in Pipes.
