Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

Faecal bacterial numbers, in particular, are reduced to zero, and thus early water
engineers judged the quality of chlorinated water supplies quite simply on
whether faecal indicator bacteria – principally coliform bacteria – were present in
One O/R system may tend to accept electrons from another system, i.e. the first
system will be reduced while the second system will be oxidized. The capacity of
an O/R system to be oxidized or reduced depends on the relative oxidizing power
NAD can accept two electrons and one proton and thus exists in the reduced
form: NADþ þ 2H ! NADH þHþ Reduced forms of these pyridine nucleotides are
normally reoxidized by transfer of their electrons to a molecule of a
9 FERMENTATION A major product in the catabolic pathways discussed above is
the reduced pyridine nucleotides. A cell contains only a very limited amount of
NADþ and NADPþ. A means for continuously regenerating these from the ...
