Desalination for Drinking Water
Desalination is increasingly being used to provide drinking-water under conditions of freshwater scarcity. Water scarcity is estimated to affect one in three people on every continent of the globe, and almost one fifth of the world’s population live in areas where water is physically scarce. This course introduces the concept of water safety plans (WSPs) for desalination systems, provides an overview of potential hazards in source water and describes microbial and chemical risks and other key issues associated with treatment, re-mineralization, storage and distribution.
Once you complete your course review, take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 3 PDH credit.
This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
