Disinfection for Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems
The infiltration of partially treated wastewater effluent into the soil, a common practice for many onsite and decentralized wastewater management systems, has the potential to degrade groundwater quality. Of primary concern is the transfer of pathogenic constituents from infected individuals via wastewater to groundwater. Decentralized treatment systems that include a disinfection process may serve to protect groundwater resources and public health. This course provides an overview of disinfection systems for the treatment of small wastewater flows and includes a summary of the unique challenges encountered in small system designs.
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:
