Course detail

Water Quality

FAST-DP64Acad. year: 2017/2018

For Water Quality Wastewater Treatment is prerequisite. The goal is to introduce basic characteristic of water, hydrobiology, kind of pollution and its effects and methods of water quality evaluation. Ground, surface and rain water is discussed. Important part is breakdown on surface and ground water, its elimination, control of water quality and legislation for protection of water in Czech republic. The last part deals with water quality modelling (QUAL2E).
