Purpose & Background

The main intent of this course is to familiarize practitioners with the requirements for process design of groundwater treatment technologies. The knowledge gained throughout this course will allow participants to identify and calculate the key design criteria for water treatment processes; including:

  • Iron and manganese design
  • Ion exchange design
  • Aeration design
  • Activated carbon design
  • Membrane softening and brackish water RO
  • Activated alumina design
  • Adsorptive media design
  • Precipitation and filtration design
  • Natural treatment process design
  • Residuals handling design
  • Mechanical dewatering design

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate the applicability of groundwater treatment plant processes.
  • List the key requirements needed to identify unit treatment processes.
  • Identify the unit processes in a groundwater treatment plant design.
  • Calculate groundwater treatment plant design criteria for each unit process.
  • Prepare an example basis of design report for a groundwater treatment plant.

Assessment of Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes are assessed through multiple tests, interactive knowledge checks, and case studies, as well as weekly forum participation throughout the course.

Who Should Attend?

  • Engineers engaged or plan to be engaged in groundwater treatment plant design
  • Engineers and managers who are stakeholders in groundwater treatment plant designs
