General Introduction to Wastewater Management

             Types of Wastes normally generated

            Impactof waste water on the environment

            BOD, Dissolved Oxygen, Solubility and De-oxygenation of surface water (streams, rivers)

            Water Pollution, Environmental Effects and Controls

            Self Purification Capacity of Rivers and Streams

            Wastewater (Effluent) Quality and Standards

2. Basic Microbiology of Waste Management:

1.1. Types of waste borne micro-organisms (bacteria, protozoa, virus, amoeba, spirogyra, algae, fungus, etc). Pathogenic microorganisms, etc.

1.2. Phases of bacterial growth

1.3. Water borne diseases and controls

 

        Structure and growth of microorganisms; Sterilization and culture techniques; water use and water related diseases; Physical, chemical and biological characteristics of water and waste water – their determination and significance; Appropriate technology of water supply and treatment; coagulation; sedimentation; flocculation; filtration; disinfection; storage and distribution, etc. Appropriate technology for excreta disposal (septic tank; Imhoff Tank; WACT; pit latrines; oxidation ponds, etc).
