Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Complete, practical coverage of pollution control regulations and water quality modeling

Water Quality Modeling for Wasteload Allocations and TMDLs provides practical guidance for engineers charged with determining the volume and character of wastewater that a body of water can receive without suffering environmental damage. Following the discussion on water pollution control regulations and their relationships to water quality modeling and wasteload allocation for determining the total maximum daily load (TMDL), the first half of the book focuses on quantifying the model coefficients to characterize physical, chemical, and biological processes of a variety of water quality problems.

The remainder of the book guides engineers in the application of EPA-developed models for regulatory use. Presenting numerous case studies and a substantial amount of data, this comprehensive guide:

  • Covers practical applications of wasteload allocation
  • Provides guidance to develop technical information for obtaining National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits
  • Demonstrates the application of STREAM, QUAL2E, WASP, and HAR03

Water Quality Modeling for Wasteload Allocations and TMDLs is an essential resource for state and federal water quality agencies, consulting engineering firms, publicly owned treatment works, environmental biologists and chemists, and public health officials involved with pollution control.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
The book attempts to present models usable for study of the complex TMDL problem which tries to separate the contribution of non-point to point sources to water quality in a water body. It indicates to some extent that in most cases the loadings to a water body are 60-80% non-point source, but the book only deals with reducing point sources-not how to clean up non-point sources.
The series of water quality models presented for use are very oversimplified for real applications and reviews by groups such as the WERF indicte that most of them are out of date in that they do not consider real water body hydrodynamics coupled with advanced water quality models.
A better starting place to overcome these deficienies would be the recent workbook published by American Society of Civil Engineers Press "Water Body Hydrodynamic and Water Quality Modeling" on Three dimensional water body modeling, and including an introductory 3D model on a CD ROM.
