by Gaines Bradford Jackson, B.S., M.S., Dr. PH. This storehouse of knowledge is a collection of complementary related nomograms encompassing various general categories associated with the water utility field as training tools. These nomograms will help novice water utility personnel with a limited technical background to solve rapidly and accurately many practical engineering, design, operational maintenance and control, and equipment problems. Each namogram is presented with a brief explanation of its derivation, and example situation with a solution and its complete and simple explanation, and a courtesy statement acknowledging the nomograms source. They are divided into categories and are listed with descriptive titles for quick reference. The author has listed formulae with most nomograms where he considered it necessary, and omits formulae from others considered to be compound nomograms; however, the use of all nomograms is fully explained. This text also includes significant appendices designed to aid the operator in training.
