WATER & ENVIRONMENTAL
TECHNOLOGY
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection
requires that operators of drinking water and wastewater
treatment facilities are certified. Certification is obtained through
a combination of exams and operating systems. The completion
of an approved associate degree program significantly reduces the
number of years of operating experience required for certification.
Students in the Water and Environmental Technology program
gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for successful
completion of Department of Environmental Protection
examinations.
Courses in the Water and Environmental Technology program are
designed to meet the knowledge, skills, and ability requirements
tested on the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental
Protection certification exams. This will include courses covering
topics such as water and wastewater treatment; water distribution
and wastewater conveyance systems; geographical information
systems (GIS); equipment maintenance; solids handling; basic
electricity; plant administration; and rules and regulations.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:
A graduate of this program will be able to do the following:
* Describe the major processes, equipment, instrumentation,
laws, and regulations associated with the collection and
treatment of wastewater.
* Describe the major processes, equipment, instrumentation,
laws, and regulations associated with the conveyance and
treatment of potable water.
* Perform water and wastewater calculations involving flow,
volume, surface area, disinfection, solids removal, retention
time, and chemical feed rates.
* Analyze and improve operational
* procedures at water treatment and wastewater treatment
facilities.
* Prepare, analyze, interpret, and report results of water and
wastewater sample testing.
* Maintain a safe working environment as outlined by federal
and state regulations.
* Describe the Safe Water Drinking Act and its implementation.
* Identify and describe the common diseases associated with
water supply and sewage.
* Demonstrate the monitoring duties of water treatment
operators.
* Describe the areas of safety to be considered in water
treatment, storage, and laboratory testing.
* Describe the operation, components, and troubleshooting
procedures for motors and electrical circuits.
* Determine and employ optimization strategies for water
treatment and wastewater treatment processes and treatment
facilities.
