Primarily intended for a non-technical operator of small plants, and particularly of one where chemicals are used, Water Purification Plants and Their Operation provides a concise overview of the operation of water-purification plants. The publication seeks to reach audiences of varying scientific backgrounds, and so includes chapters detailing the various types of plants and the natural chemistry of water in more basic terms. The volume includes a series of intaglio printed illustrations and appendices including recipes for and the physical properties of solutions related to the purification of water. Digitized content includes five noteworthy figures.
