At the end of this module, the student will have understood and will be able to explain :
- the concepts of resources and water usage, pollutions of receiving environment
- the european and french regulations on  drinking water and on wastewater treatment
- the main processes for drinking water production and  wastewater treatment and the function of unit operations in these fields
- the more recent technologies that are used in these fields and their operation
The student will be able to:
- elaborate a document concerning the definition and construction of the treatment plant
- propose a drinking water production line (from fresh waters) and design the main operations in this line as well as the energy consumption
- compare different processes for wastewater and sludge treatment
- design a wastewater treatment plant for the removal of major pollutants and choose a technology for sludge treatment
- design a sludge digestion syste
