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.
Week 1. Water Quality
Week 2. Water Chemistry – Intro
Week 3. Water Chemistry – Equilibrium
Week 4. Drinking water treatment processes
