Average Rating

4 21
High-quality fresh water is an increasingly rare and valuable commodity. The Earth contains a finite supply of water and the small fraction which is useable for drinking and other valuable uses will continue to come under increasing pressure. With a worldwide focus on water quality and management, the fate of wastewater generated by industry is more important than ever. Treating water for discharge or reuse, and minimizing the amount of water to be treated, are important concepts for the engineering, science or other professional to understand.

This interactive online course will focus on considerations and technologies for treating industrial wastewater. Treatment of municipal and domestic wastewater, such as at publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), will be discussed briefly.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify three classes of wastewater contaminants that are a threat to public health
  • Explain the importance of a water analysis in determining how to treat potentially hazardous wastewater
  • Compare the advantages and disadvantages of zero liquid discharge on the environment
  • Differentiate between the three general treatment methods that remove contaminants from wastewater
    • SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT: Mark Reinsel, Ph.D.

      Good course. Most of the examples and questions were good. One you should check is the question on reactions that may occur prior to precipitation. Cr+6 is reduced prior to precipitation, not oxidized.

      Good course! Lots of practical info. Some mispronunciations by the reader. No math, which is either a plus or a minus depending on how you look at it.
