Course Description :

The design of physical unit operations and chemical and biological unit process for water and wastewater treatment are emphasized. The primary goals are to provide detailed coverage of the procedures that are used to design water and wastewater plants for municipalities and introduce students to the engineering and scientific principles on which these are based.

Specific Course Objectives :
  • Evaluate a scenario requiring water or wastewater treatment and draw an appropriate process flow scheme for full-scale treatment of the water or wastewater treatment plants being evaluated. The contaminants removed and the residuals produced by each operation or process must be identified in all schematics.
  • Apply established equations and approaches to the design of the following water and wastewater operations and processes: mixing, particle/liquid separation, chemical precipitation, chemical coagulation, filtration, disinfection, adsorption, ion exchange, activated sludge, gas transfer, residuals handling.
  • Professionally convey engineering design calculations using a written format.
