"I knew about waste water treatment from a regulator point of view and the course allowed me to see it from an operator and design point of view. It will make it easier to understand the pressures on the sites we visit."

The course provides a basic understanding of the design and operation of unit processes in the treatment of domestic and industrial wastewaters and an introduction to recent developments and more advanced techniques in wastewater treatment. Delegates will acquire a deeper knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological principles in wastewater assessment and treatment. Basic analytical skills are developed through laboratory analysis of wastewater and sludge samples.
Lectures / tutorials are usually in the mornings. There are optional laboratory sessions on two afternoons.
Lab description: undertakes detailed analysis of wastewater samples from a sewage treatment plant for the main chemical and physical contaminants that are used to determine wastewater quality and treatment plant performance (COD, BOD TSS, VSS, N and P).
Please note that our courses are reviewed regularly, both in response to feedback and so that information about recent research and developments can be included. Thus, content may be subject to change.
