Prerequisites: All students attending this course should have taken fluid mechanics, and have some exposure to the fundamentals of aqueous chemistry, chemical kinetics and reactor kinetics.
Target skills and knowledge: The impact of chemicals and microorganisms on water quality and public health will be discussed.
The fundamentals of unit operations such as coagulation/flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, membrane processes and disinfection will be covered. Chemical changes in distribution systems and corrosion control will also be addressed. Students will gain the knowledge required to design, operate and troubleshoot water treatment systems.
Examination methods: Exam methods will be announced soon.
Course unit contents: Estimating water consumption rates and population growth to size water treatment facilities.
Chemical, physical and biological processes commonly used in water treatment.
Calculation of chemical requirements, water quality changes impacted by treatment, design of process reactors for water purification, and residuals management.
