The work is designed for operators and managers to run plants and to advance their careers by passing state licensure exams. Sample questions and problems in the text have been selected to prepare for operator examinations. Each chapter of the book is devoted to fully clarifying a unit process, and includes sample questions and problems. The book opens with a review of math, as this is applied to wastewater calculations. Many sample problems throughout give the reader an opportunity to practice and apply math formulas in realistic wastewater situations. Step-by-step descriptions of math problems show the reader how to arrive at the correct answer. Many practical tips and sample quizzes are furnished to help operators studying on their own and in courses. Written in a readable, non-technical style, this text is designed to explain wastewater technologies using down-to-earth approaches comprehensible to students. At the same time, it provides complete definitions of the key technical terms a wastewater operator needs to know

Understandable Step-by-Step Wastewater Math Wastewater treatment plant operators use mathematics to make key process decisions. It is important for the operator to have an understanding of math fundamentals along with the technical concepts of wastewater treatment plant operation. By reviewing the math principles presented in this text and linking these principles to wastewater treatment processes, the operator can better understand and solve math related problems. This Handbook describes the typical wastewater treatment plant processes encountered by today's operator and shows how to solve process related math problems. The Math Handbook for Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators is also a valuable resource in preparing the operator for math problems given on licensing examinations for wastewater treatment systems. Typical exam problems are solved in an easy to understand, step-by-step format.

Wastewater Treatment is another indispensable work from the author of Water Treatment. Both books are helpful tools for crisis identification and, most importantly, resolution. Tillman writes in a concise, well organized format - perfect for fast reference. This operator's guide presents basic troubleshooting and problem solving information for typical problems that can occur during the operation of processes used at municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. Common problems and the recommended operator responses are listed in tabular form for individual unit processes. Entry level operators will benefit greatly from the problems Tillman addresses, while experienced operators will appreciate it as a handy reference. The information compiled in this volume has been collected from various equipment manfacturers' operation and maintenance manuals, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) technology transfer documents, the authors personal experience as a plant Operations and Maintenance manual writer, and his experience as a plant manager and operator. He includes only the most common wastewater treatment unit processes. He gives an overview of the treatment objective of the unit process, and then provides each with a troubleshooting table divided into Indicators/Observations: Possible Cause; Check or Monitor; Possible Solutions columns. Wastewater Treatment reads like the best of training manuals. Tillman's know-how, combined with his clarity, make this book required occupational reading. The brief, straightforward format and easy-to-read tables make the guide an accessible problem solving reference.

Lumpy Water Math was written to help wastewater treatment plant operators and collection system operators with the basic problem solving ability needed to evaluate and control these systems. This understanding will help the operator use math in day-to day operation as well as help prepare for certification exams. The math will be helpful to water supply and distribution system operators as the math used is basically the same.The instruction begins with basic instruction in solving for areas and volumes, detention time, flow calculations, hydraulic and organic loading and progresses to specialty areas such as activated sludge and laboratory calculations. The book includes tips for making problem solving and use of calculators easier. Typical state design standards are listed so that problem answers can be compared to accepted values. The book includes many practice problems with answers given in the appendix to help operators become proficient in basic problem solving.
