Municipal Waste Water Treatment (MWWT)
This unit analyses the nature of municipal wastewaters and the
issues involved in the management of discharges to sewers and
controlled waters, including combined storm overflows. It
examines the physical, chemical and biological quality of urban and
domestic wastewaters, together with the preliminary, primary,
secondary and tertiary/advanced treatment technologies and
processes that are used to meet discharge standards and also
reviews the measures that are used to monitor and control
discharges of industrial effluent to sewer. The unit also
addresses the relevant UK legislation and regulation covering urban
wastewaters and trade effluents as well as looking at alternative
low-technology options for low-income and developing countries.
