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.

 

This 2 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.

COURSE TITLE: Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Characterization and Management
COURSE NO: C02-077
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Centralized Wastewater Treatment for Facilities Managing Oil and Gas Extraction Wastes: Wastewater Characterization and Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course investigates  whether the current Centralized Wastewater Treatment (CWT) Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards (ELGs) are adequately managing wastewater discharges from CWT facilities accepting oil and gas extraction wastes.

 

The EPA collected and evaluated data regarding oil and gas wastewater characteristics, as well as data characterizing discharges from CWT facilities accepting oil and gas extraction wastes, which are presented in this course.

 

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.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for chemical, petroleum, environmental and industrial engineers as well as other interested in understanding the wastewater characterization and management used at CWT to treat oil and gas extraction wastewaters.
