Waste Water Plant Operators Manual.
Washington State Coordinating Council for Occupational Education, Olympia.
This manual for sewage treatment plant operators was prepared by a committee of operators, educators, and engineers for use as a reference text and handbook and to serve as a training manual for short course and certification programs. Sewage treatment plant operators have a responsibility in water quality control; they are the principal actors in implementing state and federal stream standards. Treatment as defined in this manual means disposal of wastes carried in a sewage system in a way that does not create a nuisance, interfere with aquatic life, or hurt the water or the environment. The manual includes chapters on treatment plant operation, collection of sewage, sewer maintenance, characteristics of wastes and their treatment, treatment and disposal component operation, sampling and testing, and mathematical and other fundamental information needed in the work.
