The purpose of this wastewater treatment field study training program is to: (1) develop new qualified wastewater treatment plant operators; (2) expand the abilities of existing operators, permitting better service both to employers and public; and (3) prepare operators for civil service and certification examinations (examinations administered by state/professional associations which operators take to indicate a level of professional competence). This 10-chapter volume contains information on: the treatment plant operator; why we should treat wastes; wastewater treatment facilities; racks, screens, comminutors and grit removal; sedimentation and filtration; trickling filters; rotating biological contactors; activated sludge; and disinfection and chlorination. Objectives, glossary, lessons, questions (with suggested answers), and a test are provided for each chapter. A final examination (with answers), solving water treatment plant arithmetic problems, water abbreviations, complete glossary, and subject index are provided in an appendix. Program scope/sequence and instructions to participants in home-study courses are provided in the introduction. (TW)
