Municipal and industrial wastewater has received considerable attention of research and engineering, since it touches the daily life of all populations. Securing a safe, reliable source of potable water is an ever growing challenge for governmental and professional agencies, where daily demand is growing and yet more complex issues are evolving with the daily use of more chemicals and materials. It is important for people involved in water business to get first hand understanding of the complex issues related to water and wastewater. Recently, with the extensive consumption of pharmaceutical drugs and excessive usage of electronic gadgets, more risks are posed to the environment and water supplies. It is the duty of everyone involved to ensure that the public at large are receiving healthy water for daily use. That comes from the fundamental understanding of processes and technology used in water and wastewater treatment.
The course takes a step-by-step approach to analyze and understand the issues related to water and wastewater treatment. We start with a review of aquatic chemistry, understanding the basic terminology used in the industry and gradually introducing more topics that are essential for every participant to understand and use. Federal and provincial regulations will also be reviewed. As well, we shall be using examples and practice drawings from industry. Participants are also encouraged to bring examples from their own fields to get acquainted with each other.
Topics covered include physical, chemical and biological treatment. Once the participants feel they have gained the knowledge needed, we will be covering sophisticated technologies, such as ultrasonic and supercritical fluid technologies. We will also touch base on integration of renewable energy resources in water works. Sufficient reading materials and hand-outs will be distributed for both course taking and future reference.
