The water and wastewater sector suffers from a lack of capacity and performance, which negatively impacts the environment, public health and economic processes. Polluted domestic and industrial wastewater together with fertilisers used in agriculture lead to the pollution of lakes and can cause severe damage to eco-regions as well as river basins.
Despite large-scale investments in water infrastructure, we still face challenges in terms of the operation and maintenance of water and wastewater treatment plants. This course will provide attendees with skills to treat water effectively and comply with quality regulations.
Target group: Technical staff and supervisors of wastewater treatment plants.
The content includes:
• Water purification and wastewater treatment through:
- Chlorine dosing and disinfection.
- Filtration of water supply.
• Operation of pumps.
• Water transport to high towers.
• Water supply to different pressure zones.
• Wastewater transport.
• Hydraulic water flow in pipes.
• Transport of solids.
• Operation of sewer systems.
After completing this course, the participant can:
• Influence coagulation, flocculation and sedimentation processes.
• Measure and interpret chlorine dosage.
• Understand activated sludge processes in wastewater treatment.
• Supervise and control a standard pump station system.
• Implement measures to ensure water supply to different pressure zones.
• Understand the function of valve control systems.
• Reduce water losses through pressure control.
• Regulate and circulate water flow.
• Understand the transport of solids.
• Handle the operation of sewer systems.
