This manual is the definitive source for information on installing decentralized wastewater treatment systems. Developed by a team of experts, this manual provides installers with training materials geared specifically to address installation—one of the many vital aspects of programs for managing decentralized wastewater treatment systems.
Updated and reviewed by leading experts in the field, this revised edition offers new coverage of industrial solid wastes utilization and disposal, the use of surveying in environmental engineering and land use planning, and environmental assessment. Stressing the practicality and appropriateness of treatment, the sixth edition provides realistic solutions for the practicing public health official or environmental engineer.
In recent years nitrogen in the environment has become a nationwide concern due to the sensitivity of many water bodies to excess nitrogen loading from many different sources, including Onsite Wastewater Systems (OWS). Complimentary to the Florida Onsite Sewage Nitrogen Reduction Strategies study, the Colorado School of Mines evaluated denitrification via subsurface via a soil treatment unit (STU). This presentation will share the rates of denitrification achieved and how to substantially increase them.
Covering technical principles and practical applications, this comprehensive resource explains how to design and construct sound and sustainable decentralized wastewater systems of varying sizes and in different geophysical conditions. This book covers state-of-the-art techniques, materials, and industry practices, and provides detailed explanations for why certain approaches result in more sustainable projects.
January 2010: a 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti, destroying its capital of Port-au-Prince, killing over 200,000 people. The recovery is ongoing. Tent camps were dismantled as citizens went back to some kind of home. But nearly 150,000 people still live in the shanty structures erected post disaster. Basic sanitation is a daily struggle. This talk will address the tragic reintroduction of cholera, share the ad hoc approaches to sanitation in Haiti, and the role EH professionals MUST play in disaster situations.
