Water Treatment & Distribution

This course consists of two hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. It is a detailed examination of water treatment and water distribution. This course investigates the sources and characteristics of drinking water and how that water is treated to make it safe to drink. This course also investigates the design, constructions, and operation of water distribution systems. Throughout this course, the topics are related back to the context of the roles and responsibilities of being a water treatment and/or water distribution operator within the Province of Ontario. As topics are discussed, there will also be reference to pertinent legislation (within the jurisdiction of the Province of Ontario). This course allows students an opportunity to select an industrial application or alternative treatment that is of interest to them and research the topic for later presentation to the class.
