Thoroughly revised to cover the latest standards, technologies, regulations, and sustainability practices, Water Treatment Plant Design, Fifth Edition, offers comprehensive guidance on modernizing existing water treatment facilities and planning new ones. This authoritative resource discusses the organization and execution of a water treatment plant project--from planning and permitting through design, construction, and start-up. A joint publication of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), this defi nitive guide contains contributions from renowned international experts.

This guide presents the proper procedures for the design, fabrication, inspection, testing, and installation of concrete poles. It outlines the information that a line designer should provide to the engineer who is designing the pole structure. It also suggests a suitable quality assurance program to ensure receipt of adequately designed and manufactured product. The guide addresses concrete poles that are spun or statically cast and that are prestressed, partially prestressed, or conventionally reinforced. This performance-oriented guide presents theories and methods that are generally recognized as good practice, but also allows for innovative and unique circumstances to be fully acceptable upon presentation of sufficient test data to demonstrate that proper performance can be achieved.
Design and Construction of Urban Stormwater Management Systems presents a comprehensive examination of the issues involved in engineering urban stormwater systems. This Manual?which updates relevant portions of Design and Construction of Sanitary and Storm Sewers, MOP 37?reflects the many changes taking place in the field, such as the use of microcomputers and the need to control the quality of runoff as well as the quantity. Chapters are prepared by authors with experience and expertise in the particular subject area. The Manual aids the practicing engineer by presenting a brief summary of currently accepted procedures relating to the following areas:financial services; regulations;Ø surveys and investigations;Ø design concepts and master planning;Ø hydrology and water quality;Ø storm drainage hydraulics; andØ computer modeling.
