Unified Approach to Water and Waste Water Treatment


2 Days





Course Description

This seminar will present an introduction to water and waste water treatment and provide practitioners with the common conceptual knowledge of water and waste water treatment. As well, practitioners will learn to develop block and process flow diagrams for water/wastewater treatment to convert water quality from a specific water resource to a specific water/wastewater consumer.

This seminar also will review main water/wastewater parameters without going into the chemistry. Operations of water treatment units will be explained in plain English, and plenty of case studies and practical guides and rule of thumbs will be introduced to help participants.

The concepts covered are common for municipal and industrial water and waste water treatment systems.
