Drinking Water - Treatment
In Drinking Water - Treatment, you'll learn ...
- The principles of rapid mix, coagulation, flocculation and sedimentation
- Filter types, applications and relative merits
- Disinfection methods, chemistry and design criteria
- Water softening methods and taste & odor control
- Management of water treatment plant residues
This course covers various drinking water treatment processes, including coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection. The course also explores in detail the methodology for the removal of undesirable items such as hardness, iron and manganese, and taste and odor.
In addition, the handling and feeding of chemicals and disposal of the wastes produced in the treatment process are discussed. Numerical examples related to real life problems are presented with solutions.
This course is relevant to municipal engineers, public utility directors, consulting engineers, and engineers working in regulatory agencies, as well as engineers of all disciplines who have an interest in learning about drinking water treatment processes.
