California Water Pollution Control Association, Sacramento. Joint Education Committee.; American Water Works Association, Denver, CO. California - Nevada Section.; Contra Costa Coll., San Pablo, CA.
This student's guide is designed to provide students with the job skills necessary for the safe and effective operation and maintenance of wastewater treatment plants. It consists of three sections. Section 1 consists of an introductory note outlining course objectives and the format of the guide. A course outline constitutes the second section. Section 3 (the bulk of the guide) presents lesson outlines, reviews, and labs (in the form of field trips to wastewater treatment plants) for use in conjunction with the ten chapters of the text entitled "Operation of Wastewater Treatment Plants." Topics covered in these outlines are treatment plant operation; reasons for treating wastes; wastewater facilities; racks, screens, comminutors, and grit removal; sedimentation and flotation; trickling filters; rotating biological contactors; activated sludge; waste treatment ponds; and disinfection and chlorination. (A related instructor's manual is available separately through ERIC--see note.) (MN)
