Wastewater Treatment System Performance Requirements
This online engineering PDH course outlines essential steps for characterizing wastewater flow and composition and provides a framework for establishing and measuring performance requirements. It also describes methods for establishing and ensuring compliance with wastewater treatment performance requirements that protect human health, surface waters, and ground water resources. Furthermore, it describes the characteristics of typical domestic and commercial wastewaters and discusses approaches for estimating wastewater quantity and quality for residential dwellings and commercial establishments.
In addition, this course identifies the pollutants of concern in wastewaters and discusses the fate and transport of these pollutants in the receiving environment. It also presents the various technical approaches for establishing performance requirements for onsite systems, based on risk and environmental sensitivity assessments. Finally, it discusses performance monitoring to ensure sustained protection of public health and water resources.
This 8 PDH online course is applicable to civil, and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, selection and design of subsurface wastewater infiltration systems.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Estimating wastewater characteristics
- Estimating wastewater flow
- Understanding wastewater quality
- Minimizing wastewater flows and pollutants
- Integrating wastewater characterization and other design information
- Determining the transport and fate of wastewater pollutants in the receiving environment
- Establishing performance requirements
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 3 of the USEPA Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems Manual, EPA/625/R-00/008, "Establishing Treatment System Performance Requirements".
