Author: Christopher Schultz, Daniel A. Okun

Publisher: Itdg Publishing (December 1, 1992)

Abstract: This book is intended for planners and engineers responsible for the design of water treatment plants to be built in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The book will help engineers designing new water plants or upgrading old ones in developing countries who need information concerning appropriate and economical water treatment. It will also help planners and policy makers to take an initial step towards the development of simple design criteria and standard design manuals that are tailored for local conditions. The book discusses the basic considerations that must be addressed before the actual design of water treatment plants, and then presents a series of appropriate treatment requirements and processes for plants that are to be designed for communities in developing countries, covering the topics of pre-treatment, chemicals and chemical feeding, hydraulic rapid mixing, hydraulic flocculation, sedimentation and filtration.
