Course Description & Objectives: 

This course provides the need for water treatment, the importance of providing safe water for the public and the theory and operation of conventional and advanced water treatment processes. It introduces advanced information on the theory and operation of conventional water treatment plant processes. In addition, more advanced processes including advanced oxidation for removal disinfection by-products precursors/ natural organic matter and resistant organisms like cryptosporidium; chemical precipitation/softening; demineralization/ desalination; handling and disposal of process wastes are presented.                                                                                                                                                                                                     Objectives:

  • To provide an overview of both the theoretical and practical aspects of conventional and advanced water technology for surface water treatment.
Learning Outcomes: 

On completing the course the student should be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of coagulation, flocculation, filtration and oxidation/ disinfection processes, and select appropriate processes depending on the nature of impurities to be removed and the intended use of the treated water;
  • Comprehend the basic principles of advanced water treatment processes, capabilities/constraints of their application in water treatment and have knowledge on the design and operation of these processes;
  • Select an appropriate treatment process for a specific application, and be able to identify appropriate pre-treatment and post treatment schemes, and cleaning protocols for these processes.
