What You'll Study
Analysis of physical and chemical processes in natural and engineered systems for water pollution control. Unit processes covered include, but are not limited to, aeration and gas transfer, sedimentation, filtration, coagulation/flocculation, absorption, chemical stabilization, ion exchange, disinfection. Design methodologies and operational aspects of treatment are also considered
This course provides an in-depth study of principles of biological treatment of aquatic wastes (municipal, industrial, and/or hazardous). Suspended and attached growth processes commonly in use are covered. Emphasis is given to design and operational aspects of activated sludge, trickling filters, and rotating biocontactors. On-site treatment processes are also covered.
This course covers the fundamental principles of contaminant behavior in the environment. Contaminant physical-chemical properties, transport, and transformation mechanisms affecting contaminant distribution among air, water, and solid domains are studied in-depth. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, environmental interface equilibria, advective and diffusional transport; biochemical exchange in atmospheric, aquatic, and terrestrial domains. Environmental modeling is also considered.
Review of techniques of enforcement of state and federal pollution control laws and regulations; effects on waste treatment criteria and design and evalution of municipal ordinances; preparation of environmental assessments and impact statements.
