An Introduction to Control and Chemical Feeding for Wastewater Treatment

J. Paul Guyer, P.E., R.A., Fellow ASCE, Fellow AEI

This publication contains criteria on metering, instrumentation, controls, and chemical feeding devices used in wastewater disposal systems. Specific design problems may require departures from these practices; therefore, use these criteria with discretion. For example, use of computers and microprocessors for data logging, indication, and process control is considered an emerging technology. This technology is presently primarily applicable to large wastewater treatment plants with adequately trained staff to maintain the hardware (greater than 10 Mgd size). However, improvements in electronics, hardware, software, and sensing devices (primarily sensing elements) will make this technology more desirable for smaller plants. Detailed information is not included for such emerging technology because of its state of rapid change and because additional development and application experience need to occur before application to the smaller naval facilities is justified.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
