WWT 175 - Industrial Wastewater Treatment Processes 1

Credits: 2
Focuses on the operation of industrial wastewater pretreatment facilities and industrial wastewater treatment facilities discharging directly to the environment (with NPDES permits). Introduces industrial wastewater variables, components, effects and generation. Covers treatment processes including preliminary treatment (flow equalization, screening, pH adjustment), and physical treatment (air stripping, carbon absorption).

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Describe industrial wastewater variables, components, effects and generation.
  2. Describe theory and operational considerations of typical physical/chemical industrial wastewater treatment processes.
    • Flow equalization 
    • Screening
    • Dissolved air flotation
    • Air stripping
    • Electrodialysis
    • Carbon adsorption
    • Cyanide destruction
    • Metal hydroxide precipitation
    • Oil separation
  3. Perform process control calculations.
  4. Adjust physical/chemical industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  5. Add chemicals to industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  6. Collect samples for industrial wastewater treatment processes.

Program Outcomes
  1. Monitor physical/chemical industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  2. Evaluate physical/chemical industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  3. Adjust physical/chemical industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  4. Add chemicals to industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  5. Collect samples for industrial wastewater treatment processes.
  6. Perform laboratory analysis of samples.
  7. Interpret analysis of sample data.
