COURSE TITLE: Management of Onsite and Clustered Wastewater Treatment Systems
COURSE NO: C07-013
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Management of Onsite and Clustered Wastewater Treatment Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of key considerations for developing or enhancing management programs for decentralized wastewater treatment systems.

 

One in every four households in the United States relies on an individual onsite or small cluster system to treat wastewater. In far too many cases, these systems are installed and largely forgotten – until problems arise. On the other hand, EPA concluded in its 1997 Report to Congress that “adequately managed decentralized wastewater systems are a cost-effective and long-term option for meeting public health and water quality goals, particularly in less densely populated areas.”

 

The key to achieving effective performance of decentralized sewage treatment systems from the simplest “box and rocks” septic tank and drainfield system to the most complex treatment and dispersal units; is an effective management strategy. This strategy must consider several critical elements such as planning, site conditions, risk factors, system design, and operation and maintenance, all of which comprise a management program.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and chemical engineers, sanitarians, and others seeking an understanding of Management of Onsite and Clustered Wastewater Treatment Systems.

COURSE TITLE: Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Management Practices
COURSE NO: C04-058
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Management Practices
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of wastewater treatment technologies that are applicable to the treatment of oil and gas extraction wastes used at centralized wastewater treatment (CWT) facilities managing these wastes.

 

The exploration, development and production of oil and gas reserves vary markedly from region to region. There are a number of solid and liquid waste materials generated during oil and gas exploration, extraction and production, and these waste materials may be managed by CWT facilities. The nature and characteristics and quantity of the wastes generated depend upon a number of factors, such as the type of drilling, the characteristics of the formation, the depth of the well and the type and quantity of chemical additives used during drilling, production and well maintenance activities.

 

CWT facilities that manage oil and gas extraction wastewaters use a variety of treatment technologies, depending on characteristics of the wastewater received and the treatment objectives.

COURSE TITLE: Biological Wastewater Treatment II - MBBR Processes
COURSE NO: C04-045
Biological Wastewater Treatment II - MBBR Processes
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a discussion and detailed examples of process design calculations for a single stage BOD removal MBBR (moving bed biofilm reactor) system, a two-stage BOD removal MBBR system, a single stage tertiary nitrification MBBR system, a two-stage BOD removal/Nitrification MBBR system a post-anoxic denitrification MBBR system and a pre-anoxic denitrification MBBR system.

 

This course is Part II of a three-part series. The other two courses in this Biological Wastewater Treatment series are about activated sludge processes (Part I) and Membrane Biofilm Reactor (MBR) processes (Part III).

 

The MBBR process is an attached growth process that uses plastic carriers to provide a surface on which biofilm grows.  The MBBR process doesn’t require sludge recycle, because the biomass remains in the system attached to the plastic carriers.  The required reactor size for an MBBR process is typically significantly smaller than that for an activated sludge process treating the same wastewater flow, or for other common attached growth processes like the RBC or trickling filter. It can be used for BOD removal, biological nitrification, biological denitrification, and biological phosphorus removal.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil engineers, environmental engineers, and chemical engineers. After completing this course you will be familiar with the general components and configuration of an MBBR wastewater treatment process and be able to make typical process design calculations for an MBBR process.
Learning Objectives

COURSE TITLE: Pressure and Gravity Sewers
COURSE NO: C02-068
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Pressure and Gravity Sewers
Course Highlights

This online engineering courses is divided in to two parts: The first part discusses sewer systems that use pressure to deliver sewage to a treatment system. The second part discusses small diameter gravity sewers (SDGS) which convey effluent by gravity from a tank to a treatment location. Each part presents an overall description of the relevant topic along with the advantages and disadvantages of each system, design criteria, performance data, operation and maintenance and insights about cost related data.

 

Alternative wastewater collection systems can be cost effective for homes in areas where traditional collection systems are too expensive to install and operate. Pressure and gravity sewers are used in sparsely populated or suburban areas in which conventional collection systems would be expensive. These systems generally use smaller diameter pipes with a slight slope or follow the surface contour of the land; thereby, reducing excavation and construction costs. These systems convey effluent by gravity from an interceptor tank (or septic tank) to a centralized treatment location or pump station for transfer to another collection system or treatment facility.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, mechanical and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the planning, design and installation of low pressure and small diameter gravity sewer systems.
