Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

Supplying water to the public is an extremely important function in society as water is the basic building block of life. Because water quality is of the utmost importance new regulations and water quality standards are continually changing and evolving to make sure the public has safe sources of drinking water. The first drinking water standards were written in the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which was signed into law by President Ford in 1974. Throughout the text new concepts will be introduced and an acronym will be given and used subsequently. You are going to learn to love acronyms if you become a certified operator. This text covers topics such as the Earth’s Hydrologic Cycle, sources of groundwater and Surface Water, Water Math, Water Chemistry and Standards, Microorganisms, Coagulation and Flocculation, Sedimentation, Filtration, Disinfection, Chlorine, Chloramination and Nitrification, Laboratory equipment and safety.
