Wastewater treatment is usually characterized as consisting of four sequential processes: preliminary, primary, secondary and tertiary treatment. This course will introduce you to processes and equipment for primary treatment of wastewater. You will be introduced to descriptions, functions and design considerations for sedimentation tanks and clarifiers, chemical precipitation, and Imhoff tanks. You will learn how the primary treatment processes work together with the preliminary, secondary, tertiary and sludge handling processes to form a complete wastewater treatment plant.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
