Drinking Water and Wastewater Treatment
This program focuses on the development of engineering approaches for production of drinking water; treatment, reclamation, recycling, and reuse of municipal and industrial wastewater; and modeling of water quality. Areas of specialization include: low technology and advanced treatment processes for potable water treatment, characterization and control of dissolved and particulate natural organic matter (NOM), modeling conventional and toxic contaminants in natural and engineered systems, water reuse engineering, water-quality management, and assessment and control of nonpoint source pollution and storm water.
