The effective treatment of water and disposal of liquid wastes is the responsibility of the local authority engineers in many communities. The primary responsibility in any waste treatment system is to ensure that community health is not endangered, but increasing concern is also being shown that the environment should not be unnecessarily harmed, and that the systems employed are cost effective.

This course revises and builds upon the principles of water and wastewater treatment introduced in ENV4203 Public Health Engineering course. The course aims to develop a higher level of expertise, principally in the areas of water and wastewater treatment methodology, and the design of water and wastewater treatment facilities.
