An Introduction to Oily Wastewater Collection and Treatment

COURSE NO: C06-010
An Introduction to Oily Wastewater Collection and Treatment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the collection, treatment and distribution of oily wastewater so it will be suitable for discharge to a publically owned treatment works or waterway.


Oily wastewater typically is found aboard ships, and at seaports, airports, fuel farms, and industrial facilities.  Section 311(b)(3) of the FWPCA prohibits the discharge of oil in harmful quantities into or upon the navigable waters of the United States. As indicated in the Title 40 CFR Part 110, Discharge of Oil, discharges in quantities that violate applicable water quality standards and cause a visible sheen upon the water are considered harmful.  Treatment of oil discharges or oily wastes is frequently required.


This 6 PDH online course is intended for civil, environmental and mechanical engineers, and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to methods for collection and treatment of oily wastewater generated at facilities such as seaports, airports, fuel storage facilities, and various industrial sites.
