Course Description

This course focuses on conventional technologies for drinking water treatment. Unit processes, involved in the treatment chain, are discussed as well as the physical, chemical and biological processes involved. The emphasis is on the effect of treatment on water quality and the dimensions of the  unit processes in the treatment chain. After the course one should be able to recognise the process units, describe their function, and make basic calculations for a preliminary design of a drinking water treatment plant.

The course consists of 4 modules:

  1. Introduction to drinking water treatment. In this module you learn to describe the important disciplines, schemes and evaluation criteria involved in the design phase.
  2. Water quality. In this module you learn to identify the drinking water quality parameters to be improved and explain what treatment train or scheme is needed.
  3. Groundwater treatment. In this module you l...

  3. Groundwater treatment. In this module you learn to calculate the dimensions of the groundwater treatment processes and draw groundwater treatment schemes.
  4. Surface water treatment. In this module you learn to calculate the dimensions of the surface water treatment processes and draw surface water treatment schemes.

This course in combination with the courses "Introduction to Water and Climate" and "Introduction to the Treatment of Urban Sewage" forms the Water XSeries, by DelftX.

I was excited about this topic, but I was severely disappointed by the course. 1\. The pacing was off for a course requiring only high-school level chemistry. The examples skipped steps and failed to explain constants. 2\. The materials were littered with typos, including exponents that shouldn't exist and using 'p' instead of rho in equations that contained both. The English was often difficult to understand. 3\. The staff was not involved. Only ONCE in the whole course did a TA responded to a forum comment. This was when a homework question actually had the wrong answer. No response to the comments about incorrect formulas or questions where the explanation didn't actually explain and no one understood the answer.

This is a very fantastic course that has to be taken by anyone who is keen to know the processes involved in having a safe and clean water. Taken this course would actually solidify my knowledge in water treatment and would open several options and steps to take in having good water delievery

It going to be a great course, because not too long I have changed my mind as a generalist to have a technical background, so I chose water and climate and fortunately TUDelft has started to offer it. Infact, I am so happy and I hope the instructors will be great since this is the first I am going to receive training from them. Colleagues I also hope you enjoy it as a well, get opportunities and make impact in your communities.

I think this course is a very useful one considering that I have had serious challenge with low cost drinking water treatment technologies in the refugee situations in Uganda. I am a water and sanitation engineer.
