Proper treatment and reuse or disposal of domestic wastewater is essential for protecting one of our most vital resources – water. Water is vital to the environment, the economy, and our future. Each person generates about 100 gallons of domestic wastewater each day. This wastewater must be managed to protect public health, water quality, recreation, fish and wildlife, and the aesthetic appeal of waterways.
Domestic wastewater is treated either by on-site sewage treatment and disposal systems or by centralized domestic (municipal) wastewater treatment facilities. This online course for professional engineers (PE) provides an overview of both types of systems, including design criteria, materials selection, site selection and chemical storage and handling considerations. While originally intended for military use, this online class is of interest to anyone involved in any aspect of domestic wastewater treatment. This online PE course is approved for 2 hours.
