This course will cover fundamental science and engineering principles dealing with natural and water environmental systems. First, we focus on what influences water quality and what are sources, characteristics, and effects of water pollutants. Second, we will explore the basic chemical concepts needed to understand how pollutants may change their forms and influence water quality. Finally, we will learn different physicochemical processes used at drinking water treatment processes and how they will remove water pollutants and improve the water quality.
- What determines the quality of water
- Relevant chemistry in water environment that are useful to understand how water quality is influenced by various chemical constituents and how to apply it for treatment processes
- What are essential drinking water treatment processes
