Sewer Processes: Microbial and Chemical Process Engineering of Sewer Networks concentrates on process engineering of sewer networks from a chemical and microbiological point of view to be applied by sanitary and environmental engineers, and students. By considering the sewer as a chemical and biological reactor, the book extends beyond traditional hydraulics and pollutant transport to explain how in-sewer processes can be applied to managing, operating, and designing sewer networks. By understanding this concept and the data it generates, new modeling tools and design parameters can be developed that will assist engineers in reducing microbial and chemical pollution.The book establishes sewer processes as an integral part of managing, designing, and operating an urban wastewater system. It presents in-sewer processes from a fundamental and conceptual point of view for easy understanding by students. Both engineers and students will find the book's models and practical examples useful. It demonstrates a range of sewer and treatment issues, such as odor control, corrosion, and integrated wastewater treatment. It also explains how environmental process engineering principles can be applied to sewer design, resulting in better wastewater treatment and cleaner water entering receiving areas.
