Natural Systems for Waste Management and Treatment is a hands-on manual for those directly involved in the operating, upgrading, building, designing and planning of our traditional blackwater system into an ecologically correct, natural alternative that meets new standards for a new generation looking for natural systems that solve waste management and treatment issues locally, ethically.
The biological filter solutions that have always been frowned upon by engineers and the scientifically oriented are now proven and practical, with tables and charts that prove exactly what will work and what wont work, this is an academic book for professionals that have been working in this area long enough to know better than to believe in a bunch of tree-hugging hippies.
However strangely it may seem, after decades of protests and greenpeace action, those same tree-huggers have finally managed to get their argument into this area?!?!
Here is, a book that was written by a group of professionals who have been acting in scientific circles for a good part of some thirty years, looking at waste water effluent from a differentpoint of view and studying it as a more self-reliant and cost-effective approach to purely mechanical and chemical filtration through trial, error and case studies that finally do make the difference financially.
Performance data, projects that work and reliable solutions to waste management and effluent treatment that use a natural systems approach looking at the ecology of the whole system using microbiology, plants and animals to do and even better job than that done by our machines, while repairing the ecosystem instead of sacrificing it.
Sludge treatment and management; planning, site selection, wetlands, land treatment systems, feasibility assessment, aquatic treatment systems, wastewater stabilization ponds and many more reliable alternatives to our blackwater issues.
This 433-page paperback, written by Sherwood C. Reed, Ronald W. Cirtes and E. Joe Middlebrooks, first published by McGraw-Hill Professional in August of 1998, measures 8.9 x 6 x 1 and ships at 1.4 pounds.
The market is beginning to demand ecologically correct alternatives through Natural Systems for Waste Management and Treatment that a seasoned engineer will not only understand clearly, but finally agree with for a more economically accessible future through self-reliance and sustainability that keeps bioremediation in first priority and at a less expensive cost that is academically speaking the very best technology currently available.
