Currently the most common form of drinking water treatment for surface water sources involves the chemical and/or physical removal of particulate matter by coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation and filtration processes, along with disinfection to inactivate any remaining pathogenic microorganisms. One alternative method for treating chlorine-resistant microorganisms and reducing disinfection byproducts is the use of membrane filtration. The US EPA has developed a guidance manual covering membrane filtration to support the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR). This course will look at the various membrane filtration technologies currently in use including microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), Nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO) and membrane cartridge filtration (MCF) covered in the US EPA guidance manual.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
