Text: Unit Operations and Processes in Environmental Engineering, 2nd edition, Reynolds/Richards, PWS Publishing Company
Course Purpose and Scope: The goal of this course is to familiarize you with the fundamental phenomena involved in conventional water and wastewater treatment processes (theory) and the engineering approaches used in designing such processes (design). The course will cover water and wastewater treatment concepts, including discussions on key constituents present in water and wastewater, water and wastewater quality standards, concepts of mass and energy balance, and flow and reaction kinetics. Physical and chemical processes as applied to water and wastewater treatment will be taught flowed by physical, chemical, and biological unit operations and processes for wastewater treatment. Design principles related to residuals management and effluent disposal/reuse will also be discussed. Treatment objectives will be discussed as the driving force for water and wastewater treatment. After completing this course, you should be able to: • • • • Define treatment objectives for various constituents of water and domestic wastewater Describe (qualitatively and mathematically) physical, chemical, and biological processes that are applied to remove water and wastewater constituents Apply engineering approaches to the design of unit processes for water and wastewater treatment Integrate the individual unit processes in a complete treatment train that meets use and discharge requirements
Keep in mind that though this is a design-oriented course, an understanding of the fundamental phenomena involved in treatment is important. As such, for each treatment process, we will first discuss the underlying physics, chemistry, and biology (if applied) of the process, and then move on to the engineering design of the process. In the subsequent CEEN 471 course you will work in 1
The homework is intended to reinforce your understanding of the material discussed in class. It is in your best interest to first attempt the homework on your own. PLEASE come see me – sooner is better than too late. some of the material can get rather dry. introduction to water and wastewater management. you are likely to have difficulty with the exams… • Your final grade in this course is based entirely on your performance on the exams and quizzes. • In order to practice some of the concepts presented.
