Use this new book to solve water treatment problems related to toxicity, taste and odor, and bacteria regrowth. Influence and Removal of Organics in Drinking Water presents the latest advances in oxidation technologies, ozonation, membrane technology, micropollutant removal, and filtration processes. Fundamental aspects of coagulation, flocculation, adsorption, ozonation, preozonation, and granular activated carbon are discussed. Filtration methods covered include biological filtration, membrane filtration, and ultrafiltration. The book will provide a useful reference for water treatment plant managers and operators, water engineers, water supply managers, and consultants.
