Water Treatment Plant Operation Processes I

Dublin Core

Description

A very finite amount of water on our planet (0.34%) is available to treat for human consumption. Knowing where the water comes from assists certified operators in treating raw source water to make it potable. Newer technology has been developed to treat salinized or salty water found in the ocean. These treatment methods are still extremely expensive and not widely accessible. Supplying water to the public is an extremely important function in society as water is the basic building block of life. Because water quality is of the utmost importance new regulations and water quality standards are
continually changing and evolving to make sure the public has safe sources of drinking water. The first drinking water standards were signed into law by President Ford in 1974 and it was known as the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Throughout the text new concepts will be introduced and an acronym will be given and used subsequently. You are going to learn to love acronyms if you become a certified
operator. We use them quite frequently!
