AWWA Water Operator Field Guide
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This guide is a compilation of information, charts, graphs, formulas, and definitions that are used by water system operators in performing their daily duties. There is so much information, and contained in so many different sources, that finding it while in the field can be a problem. This guide compiles information mostly from AWWA manuals, books, and standards, but also from other generic information found in many publications.
The sections of this guide group the information based on how it would be used by the operator. The guide includes information for both water treatment and distribution system operators. Design engineers should also find this material helpful. Major sections include math, conversion factors, chemistry, safety, water quality, water treatment, distribution, wells, pumps, and pressure, flows, and meters. Perusing the guide will assist in finding handy information later.
This is the second edition of the field guide. tables have been updated to reflect information in the current AWWA standards and manuals. Many example calculations were converted to a more understandable format. Thank you to Tim McCandless, Bill Lauer, and Dawn Flancher for their efforts in this revision.
