The course objective is production of drinking water from underground and surface raw water. Fundamental processes of water treatment plant including special technologies of underground water treatment (removal of nitrogenous compounds and radio nuclides) are discussed. Special attention is paid to disinfection of drinking water and biological stability of drinking water and to separation and thickening of suspension and sludge including calculation of sedimentation tanks.
