Generally the types of water to be treated is from domestic, commercial, institutional and educational establishments. Some industrial waste such as cooling tower discharge, swimming pool filter discharges and aircraft wash wastes may be admitted to wastewater treatment plants.
This 8 hour course will examine the design of wastewater treatment plants. Several different design parameters will be discussed such as, biological oxidation, chlorine demand, organic loading, primary treatment, and secondary treatment among others.
This course should be read by anyone with an interest in wastewater treatment, environmental engineering, water resources, hydraulics or anyone wanting to know more information regarding Domestic Wastewater Treatment. After reading this course the student will have furthered their knowledge regarding Domestic Wastewater Treatment.
The course materials are based solely on the engineer manual “Domestic Wastewater Treatment” as found on the website of the Army Corps of engineers.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
