Provides personnel a new understanding of how lagoon and fixed film sewage treatment systems work. Tested in short-course situations by the author over the last 20 years. Directs the material in a practical manner at operators who are responsible for process control and troubleshooting. Reduces the jargon, chemical equations, and kinetics that overwhelm most operators and laboratory technicians. Provides necessary information for understanding biological and chemical conditions at the treatment process.
