Municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) have a variety of important design issues related to the treatment of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous that are commonly found in wastewater. Nutrients that are not removed from wastewater often create significant water quality issues when discharged into receiving streams. Excessive nitrogen and phosphorous can lead to algae blooms and depleted dissolved oxygen in nearby waters. The text for this course is the newly released US EPA Manual, “Nutrient Control Design Manual”, EPA/600/R-10/100, August 2010.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
