It is great and has both SI and English units.
Paul Neuhaus
The book covers everything you must know concerning wastewater treatment written by professionals working in the field.

I bought the book and it is worth every dollar, including the additional 18% sales tax in Israel.

I have been using this text in a wastewater engineering course. It covers the different aspects of wastewater engineering well, providing in depth treatments of each. However, the great size of this book (over 1800 pages) may also be its weakness, making it an unmanageable project for the editors.

In one month of usage, I have found serious gaps in the problems. Many cross-references are incorrect, and there are some problems which omit values required for solution.

In short, this is a good source of information. With closer editing, it could be better.

I bought the book and it is worth every dollar, including the additional 18% sales tax in Israel. It is a monumental work, very clear and well written. We needed this book. Having said that, I feel that the reuse aspects in general and the "unplanned indirect drinking reuse" in particular, have received only a marginal coverage in the book. That may be sufficient for the U.S.A., but innumerable European and Asian cities base their water supply on rivers that are mostly treated wastewater. In Israel, agriculture is based on reuse yet in the book, agriculture has the same weight as golf courses. Again, in the U.S.A. it may be so, but certainly not in the rest of the world. Industrial reuse mentions only evaporative cooling and that without the critical problem of blowdown disposal. Additional examples would be helpful. In reuse issues, "emerging patogens" (i.e., those feared but yet inexistent) are given more attention that critical problems such as salt content and subsequent aquifer and soil salination. Table 13-6 does not even mention salt. The inclusion of European and Israeli contributors would have produced an even better, a more balanced work.

I can't stress enough the value in this text. Like my title states this is a must have for all sanitary engineers. The book covers everything you must know concerning wastewater treatment written by professionals working in the field. I would hope some day that they publish a book on pump stations and sanitary sewer design as well. I think that they would also be on the top of the list for these areas as well.

This book is the international version. I do not yet know if that makes a difference with this book, but as this is a textbook, I believe information such as that would be pertinent to the buyer, since assignments depend on having the correct version in many cases.

My Professor used to call this the Bible of Civil Engineering. This book is not a great textbook but it is a good reference book for the future.

Format: Hardcover
Metcalf and Eddy's Wastewater Engineering series is always good, but new editions of any book seem to have mistakes in the examples. The one that's bugging me ( it's the only one I've tried so far) is Example 4-10, concerning the time required to absorb a gas. The book gets a V value of 10; I get 1200. There's obviously something that needs explaining here, but I've been unable to get any help from either Metcalf & Eddy or McGraw Hill. My e-mails don't seem to get to anyone who can help, or they're being ignored.
It seems to be a good book, but if you have any questions you're on your own.

This is Indian Edition. I did not realize this until after I received the book. It was shipped from india, with high VOC ink, mis-aligned margins, and photocopied pages. Don't know if all Indian editions are like that.

I have used Metcalfe and Eddy's Wastewater Engineering from 3rd to 4th editions, and cannot think of a more comprehensive resource for all aspects of wastewater engineering from process design through to odour management through to water and sludge recycling.

The use of SI system in 4th edition is great and I agree with other users, the Bible is getting so big that it needs a searchable PDF to find references quickly.

The process equations have been updated to COD type design from older BOD standards, and allow for ease of process selection, with a good overview of strengths and weaknesses of each treatment type for attached growth, suspended processes and even advanced oxidation processes for removing remaining inorganics.

If there could be said to be a weakness perhaps there is one for tropical water temperatures of 32-35 degrees celcius, but this is dependant on the literature and research community due to lack of hi-tech development in the tropics.

I have tags on pages that are much used to speed access, wouldn't recommend students carry it as it is very big.

Unlike some expensive env engineering texts, this one is worth every penny.
