Water pollution issues continue to dominate public concerns about water quality in the U.S. and call attention to the need for maintaining healthy ecosystems. Although a large investment in water pollution control has helped reduce our nation's problem, many miles of streams are still impacted by a variety of different pollutants. This, in turn, affects the ability of people to use the water for beneficial purposes. Wastewater treatment is needed so that we can use our rivers and streams for fishing, swimming, and drinking water.

This course covers basic concepts of wastewater treatment, including common pollutants in wastewater, wastewater collection, and wastewater treatment processes. It is intended for civil and environmental engineers, but would also be valuable for individuals in fields such as planning, financing, and management. This is an introductory course and the student is not required to have any prior knowledge of the course material.
