Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater Lowest new price: $181.00
Lowest used price: $181.00
List price: $295.00
Author: American Public Health Association

Analysts, researchers, and regulators have relied on this peer-reviewed publication since 1905, and it remains a trusted source of accurate, proven methodology for analyzing natural waters, water supplies, and wastewaters.

The book contains over 400 laboratory methods for the analysis of: Dissolved Solids,
Metals, Free and Total Chlorine, Odor, Taste, and Flavor Profile Analysis, Disinfection By-products, Radionuclides, Total Organic Carbon
and Total and Fecal Coliform.

The 22nd edition advances the science of water analysis with input and consensus of hundreds of water and wastewater experts from around the world. Laboratories worldwide rely on this comprehensive reference as a trusted source of accurate, proven methodology for analysis of water, water supplies, and wastewater. It is the essential resource.

The methods in the 22nd edition (as in previous editions) are believed to be the best available, generally accepted procedures for analyzing water, wastewater, and related materials. They represent the recommendations of specialists, ratified by a large number of analysts and others of more general expertise, and as such are truly consensus standards, offering a valid and recognized basis for control and evaluation.

All methods are dated to identify which ones changed significantly between editions.

New in the 22nd edition
*The Quality Control for Parts 2000 7000 has been expanded and significantly revised to make the methods more suitable for regulatory compliance.
*Twenty-two sections in Part 9000 Microbiological Examination were revised and new procedures added. These include information on viable but nonculturable bacteria, new information on the fluorogenic substrate test for E. coli, and an expansion of the section on identification of iron and sulfur bacteria.
* Flavor Profile Analysis for drinking water was expanded with an extended introduction and new taste-and-odor color wheel.
*The determination of metals using Inductively Coupled Plasma/Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) contains updated quality control requirements and added collision cell technology.
*Additional sampling, filtering, and storage requirements were added to UV-Absorbing Organic Constituents.
*New methods have been added for the determination of nitrosamines in drinking water.
*The method for radium was updated.
*The references and bibliography were updated for Part 8000 Toxicity.

Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond (Vol. 2): Water-Harvesting Earthworks Lowest new price: $24.52
Lowest used price: $18.45
List price: $39.95
Author: Brad Lancaster
Brand: Rainsource Press

Turn water scarcity into water abundance!
Earthworks are one of the easiest, least expensive, and most effective ways of passively harvesting and conserving multiple sources of water in the soil. Associated vegetation then pumps the harvested water back out in the form of beauty, food, shelter, wildlife habitat, and passive heating and cooling strategies, while controlling erosion, increasing soil fertility, reducing downstream flooding, and improving water and air quality.

Building on the information presented in Volume 1, this book shows you how to select, place, size, construct, and plant your chosen water-harvesting earthworks. It presents detailed how-to information and variations of a diverse array of earthworks, including chapters on mulch, vegetation, and greywater recycling so you can customize the techniques to the unique requirements of your site.

  • Real life stories and examples permeate the book, including:
  • How curb cuts redirect street runoff to passively irrigate flourishing shade trees planted along the street
  • How check dams have helped create springs and perennial flows in once-dry creeks
  • How infiltration basins are creating thriving rain-fed gardens
  • How backyard greywater laundromats are turning "wastewater" into a resource growing food, beauty, and shade that builds community, and more.
  • How to create simple tools to read slope and water flow
  • More than 225 illustrations and photographs

For more than two decades, William Mitsch and James Gosselink's Wetlands has been the premier reference on wetlands for ecologists, land use planners, and water resource managers worldwide—a comprehensive compendium of the state of knowledge in wetland science, management, and restoration.

Now Mitsch and Gosselink bring their classic book up to date with substantial new information and a streamlined text supplemented with a support web site. This new Fourth Edition maintains the authoritative quality of its predecessors while offering such revisions as:

  • Refocused coverage on the three main parts of the book: 1. An introduction to the extent, definitions, and general features of wetlands of the world; 2. Wetland science; and 3. Wetland management.

  • New chapter on climate change and wetlands that introduces the student to the roles that wetlands have in climate change and impact that climate change has on wetlands.

  • Increased international coverage, including wetlands of Mexico and Central America, the Congolian Swamp and Sine Saloum Delta of Africa, the Western Siberian Lowlands, the Mesopotamian Marshland restoration in Iraq, and the wetland parks of Asia such as Xixi National Wetland Park in eastern China and Gandau Nature Park in Taipei, Taiwan. This expanded coverage is illustrated with over 50 wetland photographs from around the world.

  • Several hundred new refer?ences for further reading, up-to-date data, and the latest research findings.

  • Over 35 new info boxes and sidebars provide essential background information to concepts being presented and case studies of wetland restoration and treatment in practice.

Water Quality Engineering: Physical / Chemical Treatment Processes

Water Quality Engineering: Physical / Chemical Treatment Processes Lowest new price: $124.44
Lowest used price: $122.97
List price: $170.00
Author: Mark M. Benjamin
Brand: Brand: Wiley

Explains the fundamental theory and mathematics of water and wastewater treatment processes

By carefully explaining both the underlying theory and the underlying mathematics, this text enables readers to fully grasp the fundamentals of physical and chemical treatment processes for water and wastewater. Throughout the book, the authors use detailed examples to illustrate real-world challenges and their solutions, including step-by-step mathematical calculations. Each chapter ends with a set of problems that enable readers to put their knowledge into practice by developing and analyzing complex processes for the removal of soluble and particulate materials in order to ensure the safety of our water supplies.

Designed to give readers a deep understanding of how water treatment processes actually work, Water Quality Engineering explores:

  • Application of mass balances in continuous flow systems, enabling readers to understand and predict changes in water quality
  • Processes for removing soluble contaminants from water, including treatment of municipal and industrial wastes
  • Processes for removing particulate materials from water
  • Membrane processes to remove both soluble and particulate materials

Following the discussion of mass balances in continuous flow systems in the first part of the book, the authors explain and analyze water treatment processes in subsequent chapters by setting forth the relevant mass balance for the process, reactor geometry, and flow pattern under consideration.

With its many examples and problem sets, Water Quality Engineering is recommended as a textbook for graduate courses in physical and chemical treatment processes for water and wastewater. By drawing together the most recent research findings and industry practices, this text is also recommended for professional environmental engineers in search of a contemporary perspective on water and wastewater treatment processes.
