The main reading material for this course are the lecture notes. Besides that Metcalf & Eddy is used as background material and bookchapter on anaerobic treatment is included.

Three books are used at the course of Wastewater Treatment. The first one, Wastewater Engineering, Treatment and Reuse, is the most important one. The other books support the lecture slides.
