This book is only available as part of the on-line course (DW05). (http://www.youlearnwater.com/collections/all) A discount of 20% is offered on the course if you enter the discount code IWAP20. This book is an integral part of the on-line course that provides comprehensive knowledge of the Management and Optimisation of Water Treatment Processes and is available only through enrolment on the Management and Optimisation of Water Treatment Processes Course which is self-paced and self-assessed. It can be accessed from a PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone and involves 20 hours of learning, including exercises. The course carries the value of 2 CPD/CEU points and is accredited by the CPD Standards Office in London. This course is based around the most common water treatment processes of coagulation, clarification, filtration and granular activated carbon (GAC) adsorption, and practices and techniques for optimising these are presented. It also provides an understanding of ways in which additional processes such as ozonation, powdered activated carbon (PAC) adsorption, biological filtration and ultraviolet (UV) irradiation can be used to enhance and optimise overall treatment performance, and identify where this can be cost-effective. The course is aimed at scientists, engineers and managers with an existing knowledge of water treatment who need a more thorough understanding of how to operate and optimise the processes to maximise their performance and cost-benefits. The five main learning outcomes provide: Water treatment design and operating principles. Opportunities to optimise the water treatment process streams in relation to performance and cost-benefits. Techniques and practices to help facilitate optimisation. Monitoring and control practices to maintain efficient operating conditions. Management of the treatment and disposal of waterworks wastes.
