The Drinking Water Handbook.

Frank Spellman and Joanne Drinan (2000)

This handbook provides a systematic explanation of the many processes employed to make water safe to drink. It clarifies the laws that set the standards for quality and investigates the physical, chemical, and microbiological parameters that must be modified to produce potable and good-tasting water. Careful attention is paid to present emerging technologies that result in high-quality drinking water: purification, filtration, disinfection, distribution, and more. The book discusses the relation of water reuse to the hydrologic cycle and what is being done to mitigate growing concerns about disinfection by-products. The Drinking Water Handbook will be of interest to water/wastewater plant managers, water/wastewater plant engineers, and safety and chlorination specialists.
