Design of Water Resource Recovery Facilities, Sixth Edition

by: The Water Environment Federation (WEF)


Abstract: Complete coverage of the state-of-the-art in water resource recovery facility design. Featuring contributions from hundreds of wastewater engineering experts, this fully updated guide presents the latest in facility planning, configuration, and design. Design of Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WEF Manual of Practice No. 8 and ASCE Manuals and Reports on Engineering Practice No. 76), Sixth Edition, covers key technical advances in wastewater treatment, including: • Advances with membrane-bioreactor applications • Advancements within integrated fixed-film/activated sludge (IFAS) systems and moving-bed biological-reactor systems • Biotrickling filtration for odor control • Increased use of ballasted flocculation • Enhanced nutrient-control systems • Sidestream nutrient removal to reduce the loading on the main nutrient-removal process • Use and application of wireless instrumentation • Use and application of modeling wastewater treatment processes for the basis of design and evaluation of alternatives • Process design and disinfection practices to minimize generation of TTHMs and other organics monitored for potable water quality • Approaches to minimizing biosolids production and advances in biosolids handling, including effective thermal hydrolysis, and improvements in sludge thickening and dewatering technologies • Increasing goals toward energy neutrality and driving net zero • The trend toward resource recovery

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) is a not-for-profit technical and educational organization of 33,000 individual members and 75 affiliated Member Associations representing water quality professionals around the world. Since 1928, WEF and its members have protected public health and the environment. As a global water sector leader, our mission is to connect water professionals; enrich the expertise of water professionals; increase the awareness of the impact and value of water; and provide a platform for water sector innovation. To learn more, visit www.wef.org. Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE; www.asce.org) represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide, and is America's oldest national engineering society. Created in 1999, the Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI) is an institute of ASCE. EWRI services are designed to complement ASCE's traditional civil engineering base and to attract new categories of members (non–civil engineer allied professionals) who seek to enhance their professional and technical development in the fields of environmental and water resources engineering.
