Operation of Wastewater Treatment Plants, Vol I.

Sacramento State training manuals are a sought-after resource for operators preparing for state certification. This training manual was developed to serve the needs of operators in a variety of ways, including: as a self-paced, independent-study distance learning course, and as a textbook in traditional college and university classes (often taught by experienced operators). The goal is to provide you with an understanding of basic operational and maintenance concepts for wastewater treatment systems and with an understanding of basic treatment methods and with the ability to analyze and solve problems when they occur.

(Textbook is not required but is recommended).
