- Environmental Engineering Training
- Wastewater Treatment - Design, Operation and Optimization for Small and Medium Sized Communities
This seminar addresses issues regarding the technology and operation of wastewater systems in view of enhancing their efficiency. In addition, this seminar addresses stand alone biological systems, lagoons and large subsurface systems.
- Course Outline
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- recognize the complexity of wastewater treatment
- gain knowledgeable to question the rationale of the engineering proposals
- appreciate as the owner of a system the need to operate the systems in an optimized manner and learn about troubleshooting
- develop skills necessary for trouble-free operation of small and medium sized communities' wastewater treatment systems
The continued efficient operation of wastewater systems in small and medium sized communities without detrimental environmental impact is a growing concern for wastewater system owners. With limited funds available to the owners as well as regulatory agencies, the task of sewage treatment and disposal is becoming increasingly difficult.
This seminar addresses issues regarding the technology and operation of wastewater systems in view of enhancing their efficiency. In addition to conventional systems, this seminar addresses stand alone biological systems, lagoons and large subsurface systems. The course will touch on sludge treatment and disposal.
To develop skills necessary for trouble-free operation of small and medium sized communities' wastewater treatment systems
