Raikes Design, Construction and Maintenance of Sewage Disposal Works nor H. T. Calverts translation of Dunbars Principles of Sewage Treatment had been published. Even after these excellent books appeared, however, it still seemed to us that there remained room for a general survey of the problem from the various viewpoints of the chemist, the sanitary biologist and the engineer, and with particular reference to the conditions of American practice. It has been our aim to discuss somewhat fully the fundamental principles of chemistry and bacteriology which are involved and yet to include also the more important aspects of the engineering works designed to carry them into operation. It is hoped that the book may be useful to the student of sanitary engineering who aims to fit himself for the construction of sewage disposal works, to the engineer who after, working in other lines is drawn into this growing field, and to the chemist, the bacteriologist and the public health official concerned in the operation of disposal works after they are built.The thanks of the authors are due to a long list of engineers and others who have furnished unpublished data for various sections of the book. In particular, grateful mention must be made of Mr. J. D. Watson, of Birmingham, England- Mr. G. J. Fowler, of Manchester, England- Mr. W. J. Dibdin, of London, England- Mr. H. P. Eddy, Mr. Leonard Metcalf and Mr. F. A. Barbour, of Boston- Mr. G. E. Boiling, of Brockton, Mass.- Mr. W. M. Brown, of the Metropolitan Sewerage Commission of Massachusetts- Mr. A. L. Fales, supervising chemist Worcester Sewage Works- Mr. J. W. Bugbee, supervising chemist Providence Sewage Works- Mr. Charles Saville, of the Massachusetts State Board of Health, Mr. F. W. Jones, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Mr. Paul Hansen, of the Ohio State Board of Health.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
