An Introduction to Secondary Wastewater Treatment

J. Paul Guyer, P.E., R.A., Fellow ASCE, Fellow AEI

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 secondary treatment of wastewater. You will be introduced to descriptions, functions and design considerations for trickling filter plants, activated sludge plants, and wastewater treatment ponds. You will be introduced to special considerations for wastewater treatment plants in hot and cold climates. You will learn how the secondary treatment processes work together with the preliminary, primary, 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.
