Advanced Onsite Wastewater Systems Technologies

Anish R. Jantrania and Mark A. Gross (2006)

Drawing on the authors' combined experience of more than 30 years, Advanced Onsite Wastewater Systems Technologies explores the use of advanced technologies on a wide-scale basis to solve the problems associated with conventional septic-tank and drainfield systems. The book discusses a regulatory and management infrastructure for ensuring long-term, reliable applications of onsite systems for wastewater management. It provides an overview of advanced onsite technologies and compares them with conventional onsite systems and centralized wastewater systems. Key concepts for decentralized wastewater solutions are presented, as is information on advanced onsite wastewater treatment and effluent dispersal technologies currently available. The book delineates a management, regulatory, and planning framework for use of advanced onsite systems technologies as alternatives to conventional septic systems and centralized collection and treatment plants. It concludes with an exploration of the future of advanced onsite systems technologies and their uses.

Serving as a toolbox for service, professionals, regulators, and community planners, the book highlights objective methods of assessing the performance of technologies and gives examples of real-world applications. The authors detail a solution-driven and performance-based regulatory framework for the use of advanced onsite systems as a true alternative to centralized collection and treatment plants, and offer guidance on how to plan for future growth with such systems.

Onsite Sewage Treatment and Disposal System (OSTDS) Interactive CD

Volusia County Health Department (2002)

This CD-ROM, developed by the health department of Volusia County, Florida, has been updated to include some of the most recent rule changes. With comprehensive information about onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems presented in a user-friendly, fun, and informative way, it will help managers

* cut OSTDS training time in half,

* double training retention and understanding,

* cut new-employee training time in half, and

* standardize forms completion.

Some special features include animation, video demonstrations of soil evaluation and ribboning, interactive benchmark setting, and detailed three-dimensional graphics drawn to scale.

The minimum hardware and software requirements for the CD are as follows: Pentium machine, 16MB memory, external speakers, a display-size setting of 800 x 600, 16-bit color, 2X CD-ROM drive, Windows 95 with the MM player installed, and a 14-inch monitor.

NEHA grants one continuing-education unit (CEU) for use of the OTSDS, and the Florida Department of Health grants one CEU toward septic-tank contractor training.

Environmental Engineering (Fifth Edition)

Edited by Joseph A. Salvato, Nelson L. Nemerow, and Franklin J. Agardy (2003)

Upholding the reputation of its predecessors as the most trusted single-source handbook on the subject, this new edition of Environmental Engineering provides up-to-date, practical guidance on a full range of environmental issues, while delivering the critical material on the sanitation management and engineering methods used by today's leaders in the field.

Environmental Engineering addresses environmental control in urban, suburban, and rural settings--including general design, construction, maintenance, and operation details related to plants and structures. Environmental Engineering is an essential reference for environmental and civil engineers, environmental consultants and scientists, and regulatory and safety professionals in the public and private sector, and it is a study reference for NEHA's R.E.H.S./R.S., C.F.S.P., and C.E.H.T. exams.

1,544 pages, hardcover. Member: $214.95. Nonmember: $239.95. Catalog #58.
