Stories From the Road: On the Job Experiences of Water Treatment Operators

Nicholas Pizzi

Water treatment plant operators are an innovative and resourceful group of professionals. Stories From the Road: On the Job Experiences of Water Treatment Operators provides insight to the services water operators provide.

The book includes actual stories from real people dealing with real problems and celebrates their accomplishments, while offering inspiration and valuable information to others.

Often, operators must come up with alternative methods when tried-and-true procedures don't work. These stories of real people in the diverse cities of Cleveland; Long Beach, Calif.; Golden, Colo., and Santa Fe, N.M., provide stellar examples of operators making tough decisions under pressure.

Appendices on pumping and horsepower calculations, chloramination guidelines, disinfection practices for trihalomethane control, and several other topics related to the experiences told in the book are also included. Stories From the Road will serve as a useful reference for any water treatment operator.
