This study guide is a companion to the sixth edition of Operation of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plants (Manual of Practice No. 11). These two publications serve as the principal training documents for plant managers, superintendents, and operators of municipal wastewater treatment plants as well as college students and consulting engineers. The manual and study guide can be used for training classes, studying for certification exams, and improving the quality of operations within the treatment plant or firm. As with the updated manual, this study guide reflects the state of the art in plant management and operation. The questions emphasize principles of treatment, plant management, troubleshooting, and preventive maintenance. Operating a wastewater treatment facility is challenging and requires continuing education to keep up with those challenges. As such, this study guide contains challenging questions and detailed solutions. A list of symbols and acronyms, conversion factors, and a glossary are also Included in this study guide. These questions can be used to help develop advanced knowledge and ensure that wastewater treatment facilities are fulfilling their mission of environmental protection.
