  • Learn how recirculation increases BOD removal efficiency in high rate trickling filter processes
  • Understanding the four common flow diagrams for single-stage and two-stage trickling filter plants
  • Understanding why loading rate is the key design factor whether the surface application is continuous, intermittent, constant or varying rate
  • Understanding the importance of ventilation in providing aerobic conditions for effective treatment
  • Understanding how performance of trickling filters will be affected by temperature changes in the wastewater and filter films
  • Learning about design formulas for determining BOD removal efficiencies for single- and two-stage trickling filters
  • Understanding the purpose of secondary sedimentation tanks
  • Learn about the conventional plug-flow, step aeration,  contact stabilization, and completely-mixed activated sludge processes
  • Learning about the closed-loop reactor (oxidation ditch) extended aeration process
  • Learning about the classifications of wastewater treatment ponds
  • Learning about shallow and aerated aerobic ponds
  • Learning about aerobic-anaerobic and facultative wastewater treatment ponds

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Small Flow Waste Treatment Systems
COURSE NO: C02-028
An Introduction to Small Flow Waste Treatment Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to small flow waste treatment systems such as septic tanks, waterless toilets, filtration and reuse systems, Imhoff tanks, and packaged treatment plants. You will learn about subsurface absorption and how to conduct percolation tests.  You will learn how to utilize leaching wells, sand filters, mound systems and other methods of waste disposition.  The systems you will be introduced to in this course will generally be applicable to facilities with a waste discharge requirement of less than 1.0 million gallons per day.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for engineers, design professionals, and construction personnel who are interested in gaining an introduction to small flow waste treatment systems.

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Trickling Filter Wastewater Treatment Plants
COURSE NO: C02-055
An Introduction to Trickling Filter Wastewater Treatment Plants
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to trickling filter wastewater treatment plants.

 

Trickling filter plants have been justified by their low initial cost, low operating and maintenance costs, and relative simplicity of operation. Although the effluent from trickling filter plants of earlier design was of poorer quality than that from activated sludge plants, the performance of trickling filters designed more recently is comparable to that of activated sludge plants. Both processes offer certain advantages, with trickling filters providing good performance with minimal operator care and few, if any, energy requirements.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil and environmental engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to the design and operation of trickling wastewater treatment filters.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about fundamental design data and information for trickling filter processes
  • Learning about the recommended depth criteria and application rates for stone media trickling filters
  • Learning about recirculation as a recommended method of increasing the biochemical oxygen demand removal efficiency of high-rate trickling filter processes
  • Learning about the recommendations for design recirculation rates for high-rate filters
  • Learning about hydraulic and organic loading rates and their importance as key design factors whether a surface application is continuous, intermittent, constant rate, or varying rate
  • Learning how ventilation provides aerobic conditions for effective treatment
  • Learning how the performance of trickling filters will be affected by temperature changes in the wastewater and filter films
