After completion of the course, the student should be able to
- identify suitable raw water sources for municipal use based on their composition and availability, and discuss the most important challenges for drinking water supply in Scandinavia
- describe the basis for the selection of different treatment steps in drinking water production
- calculate and describe the differences in chemical and microbial composition that result from diffrent drinking water treatment processes
- explain the basic principles of a distribution network for drinking water and wastewater
- determine appropriate hydraulic dimensions for a drinking water and wastewater pipeline
Raw water sources, i.e., rivers, lakes, reservoirs, groundwater, that can be exploited for drinking water production. Basic drinking water chemistry. Introduction to common methods for drinking water treatment from different sources: sand and membrane filtration, coagulation/flocculation, sedimentation, water softening, softening, ion exchange, adsorption on granular activated carbon, different disinfection methods. Flow-charts for different types of municipal water treatment plants. Chemical parameters that are relevant to the National Food Agency's directives for drinking water quality. Design of pipe networks. Estimation of hydraulic dimensions of water and sewage distribution systems (designed flow).
