This seminar will present an introduction to water and waste water treatment and provide practitioners with the common conceptual knowledge of water and waste water treatment. Practitioners will learn to develop block and process flow diagrams for water and wastewater treatment to convert water quality from a specific water resource to a specific water or wastewater consumer.

This seminar will also review main water/wastewater parameters without going into the water chemistry. Operations of water treatment units will be explained, and case studies, practical guides, and Rules of Thumb will be introduced to help participants.

The concepts covered are common for municipal and industrial water and waste water treatment systems.
