Description of Sewage Pollution and Microbiology

Sewage Pollution and Microbiology by B.D. Tiwari is a great book for study sewage Pollutions & microbiology available in PDF free download. This is an introduction to selvage pollution and microbiology for students of science, medicine, and environmental science which is designed to hold the reader's attention and to stimulate his interest. The author has kept the book short so as to encourage the student to feel that he can grasp and understand the whole subject; a point especially important at a time when other subjects are making large demands on his time. This book is concerned more with current ideas in sewage pollution than with a list of the currently known facts of the subject; for author feels that this approach is more likely to interest students who are starting the subject and, in consequence,  is more likely to lead to their remembering the subject.

The techniques for the detection of pollutants have been described in a very lucid style so that an average student may understand them. The methods for water treatment processes, designing, and treatment of industrial effluents and methods for prevention or control of pollution have been described.

The author of this Sewage Pollution and Microbiology book expresses his thanks to all those colleagues,  friends, and research scholars whose continuous inspirations have initiated him to bring this title. The author wishes to thank the staff members and publisher for bringing out this Sewage Pollution and Microbiology book. Constructive criticisms and suggestions for improvement.of the book will be thankfully acknowledged.
