Water Filtration (VTE870)

This course will examine the different methods of filtration, the types of filters and the component used in a water system, the pretreatment process and common components associated with granular media filters. Students will also learn about optimizing their filtration performance and the techniques of evaluating the filter beds to recognize problems before they occur. Evaluation techniques for water filtration will include taking freeboard measurements, obtaining a top layer gravel footprint measuring filter rise rate during backwash, and performing floc retention analysis to determine how effective your backwash is at cleaning your filter media.
