COURSE TITLE: Background Use of Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
COURSE NO: C02-008
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Background Use of Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how onsite wastewater treatment systems (OWTS) have evolved throughout the years along with changing regulations. It also discusses current uses and types (performance-based vs. prescriptive requirements) of OWTS as well as the management program problems associated with such systems. Finally, this course presents initiatives taken to improve onsite system treatment and management.

 

Onsite wastewater treatment systems have evolved from the pit privies used widely throughout history to installations capable of producing a disinfected effluent that is fit for human consumption. Although achieving such a level of effluent quality is seldom necessary, the ability of onsite systems to remove settleable solids, floatable grease and scum, nutrients, and pathogens from wastewater discharges defines their importance in protecting human health and environmental resources. In the modern era, the typical onsite system has consisted primarily of a septic tank and a soil absorption field, also known as a subsurface wastewater infiltration system, or SWIS.

 

This 2 PDH  online course is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the design and installation of onsite wastewater treatment systems.

COURSE TITLE: Management of Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
COURSE NO: C05-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Management of Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the management of onsite wastewater treatment systems. It discusses the elements of a successful management program as well as the types of management entities in charge of the program.

 

Effective management is the key to ensuring that the requisite level of environmental and public health protection for any given community is achieved. It is the single most important factor in any comprehensive wastewater management program. Without effective management, even the most costly and advanced technologies will not be able to meet the goals of the community.

 

Numerous technologies are currently available to meet a broad range of wastewater treatment needs. Without proper management, however, these treatment technologies will fail to perform as designed and efforts to protect public health and the environment will be compromised.
