Water, wastewater and stormwater treatment in the context of catchment management
and sustainable development of our land, water and biological resources. The following
topics are covered:Chemistry for water treatment methods of expressing concentration;
physical properties of water; fundamentals of kinetics and equilibrium; pH and buffering
techniques case studies involving chlorine, phosphorous and carbonates; the influence
of pH on reaction equilibrium; project work.Water and wastewater treatment source
selection; screening, sedimentation and flocculation; aeration; filtration; reverse
osmosis; chlorination; disinfection; water quality standards and monitoring; catchment
sources; pump stations; odour control; trade waste; primary and secondary treatment;
clarifers; aerobic and anaerobic treatment; bio-solids; effluent reuse; biological
nutrient removal.Catchment management and stormwater treatment the catchment context;
catchment processes; water resource development; sustainability; natural resource
management; water quality and aquatic ecology; urban stormwater management; water
quantity and quality aspects; sediment and nutrient transport; management practices
and treatments; case studies.
- introduce catchment management and stormwater treatment;
- outline the theory and practice for design of water and wastewater treatment systems;
- to provide an understanding of chemistry for water and wastewater treatment;
- understand the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the
professional engineer with respect to water, wastewater and stormwater design and
