This course will introduce you to small flow waste treatment systems such as septic tanks, waterless toilets, filtration and reuse systems, Imhoff tanks, and packaged treatment plants. You will learn about subsurface absorption and how to conduct percolation tests. You will learn how to utilize leaching wells, sand filters, mound systems and other methods of waste disposition. The systems you will be introduced to in this course will generally be applicable to facilities with a waste discharge requirement of less than 1.0 million gallons per day. This course will give engineers and others an introduction to small flow waste treatment systems that will be a foundation upon which to build their knowledge and skills needed to address small flow waste treatment design and construction issues on day-to-day projects.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • The population limitations of septic tank systems
  • The importance of detention time when using septic tanks
  • How subsurface absorption is used in conjunction with septic tanks
  • The subsurface soil conditions required to utilize leaching wells
  • How to determine soil percolation rates
  • About humus composting toilets
  • The pros and cons of incineration toilets
  • How intermittent sand filters are used to treat waste from Imhoff and septic tanks
  • When conditions may dictate use of a mound system rather than a leach field
  • Soil and site factors that limit the use of mound systems

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 15 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
