An Introduction to Primary Wastewater Treatment

The An Introduction to Primary Wastewater Treatment online PDH course is a part of the Civil Engineering category of courses. Wastewater treatment is usually characterized as consisting of four sequential processes: preliminary, primary, secondary and tertiary treatment.  This course will introduce you to processes and equipment for primary treatment of wastewater.  You will be introduced to descriptions, functions and design considerations for sedimentation tanks and clarifiers, chemical precipitation, and Imhoff tanks.  You will learn how the primary treatment processes works together with the preliminary, secondary, tertiary and sludge handling processes to form a complete wastewater treatment plant.

This course will give civil and environmental engineers, technicians and construction professionals an introduction to the processes, equipment and design considerations for primary treatment of wastewater.

This course is intended for civil and environmental engineers, technicians and construction professionals wanting an introduction to the processes, equipment and design considerations for the second phase of wastewater treatment primary treatment.
