Small and Medium Communal Wastewater Treatment Systems

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • discover the complexity of wastewater treatment and the need to involve regulatory personnel, competent design engineers, and have an appreciation for the whole task.
  • develop alternative ways of accomplishing the end result and gain an insight into the reasons why different engineers recommend different systems and processes
  • question the rationale of the engineering proposals with the knowledge gained from this course
  • operate the systems as the owner in the designed manner and do the necessary reporting to the authorities.

The continued efficient operation of community’s wastewater systems without detrimental environmental impact is a growing concern for wastewater system owners. With limited funds available to the owners as well as regulatory agencies, the task of on-site sewage treatment and disposal is becoming increasingly difficult. This seminar addresses issues regarding the legislative framework, technology, and operation of wastewater systems in view of enhancing their efficiency.

In addition to conventional systems, this seminar will address large subsurface sewage disposal systems such as those serving groups of buildings, recreational parks etc.
