Water Pollution & Control Training – Wastewater Treatment Technologies Training

Course Outline & Aims:

Water Pollution & Control principally comprises the treatment of polluting wastewaters and their safe disposal. Wastewater is a complex mixture of natural inorganic and organic material mixed with man-made substances that is discharged to sewer and ends up at a treatment plant for purification. The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to, and basic understanding of, treatment technologies which bring about the removal of pathogenic micro-organisms through a combination of physical, chemical and biological processes.


Course Objectives:

The objectives of the course are to provide delegates with the appropriate knowledge, skills and competencies to apply appropriate treatment technologies

  • To convert, using a range of processes and plant, the waste materials present in wastewaters into stable oxidised end products that can be safely disposed of to watercourses without any adverse ecological effects;
  • To protect public health;
  • To ensure that waste water is disposed of on a regular and reliable basis without nuisance or offence;
  • To recycle and recover the valuable components of wastewater; and
  • To provide an economic method of disposal.


Intended for:

The nature of the course is such that engineering professionals from a wide range of backgrounds can be accommodated.


Methods of Instruction:

Course participants will be required to apply knowledge gained during tutored sessions into group discussions and syndicate design sessions, and will identify and define appropriate technologies and their application to industrial case studies. In total there are 22 numerical group exercises to be completed.


Delivery Methods:

Course delivery will comprise a combination of short power point presentations with flip chart calculations and demonstrations. Delegate handouts will include notes on technical theory and design charts, together with photographs and diagrams of specific treatment plants and processes.
