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.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Regulation of onsite wastewater treatment systems
  • Onsite wastewater treatment system use, distribution, and failure rate
  • Problems with existing onsite wastewater management programs
  • Performance-based management of onsite wastewater treatment systems
  • Coordinating onsite system management with watershed protection efforts
  • USEPA initiatives to improve onsite system treatment and management

COURSE TITLE: Wastewater Treatment System Selection
COURSE NO: C02-009
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Wastewater Treatment System Selection
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on the selection process of the subsurface wastewater infiltration system. It describes various steps involved in the selection process including understanding of the prevailing design conditions, matching these conditions to system performance, establishing design boundaries and boundary loadings, evaluating the receiving environment and mapping out the site.

 

Selecting the appropriate system type, size, and location at the site depends on the wastewater flow and composition information, site- and landscape-level assessments, performance requirements, and the array of available technology options. Key to selecting, sizing, and siting the system are identifying the desired level of performance and ensuring that the effluent quality at the performance boundaries meets the expected performance requirements.
