CIVL375: Water and Wastewater Technology
Catalog Data: Credits 3. This course aims at presenting the analysis and design
aspects of the main technologies employed in water and wastewater
treatment. It includes physical treatment processes like screening, grit
removal, aeration, sedimentation, and fltration. Chemical treatment
processes like coagulation- focculation, softening, iron and manganese
removal, disinfection, ion echange and adsorption, and !iological
treatment processes like activated sludge and anaero!ic treatment
units. The course addresses the reuse of wastewater and the treatment
and disposal of techni"ues of generated sludge. It also includes a
num!er of la!oratory eperiments illustrating selected water and
wastewater treatment technologies. #3-$-$%
