Water Supply Engineering




Water supply engineering is a sub-discipline of environmental engineering that deals with the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of water supply systems. Water supply systems consist of four main components: source, treatment, distribution and storage. Water supply engineering aims to provide safe, adequate and reliable water for domestic, industrial, agricultural and other purposes.


Sources, Quality and Quantity of Water Supply




The sources of water supply can be classified into two types: surface water and groundwater. Surface water includes rivers, lakes, reservoirs, ponds, etc. Groundwater includes wells, springs, aquifers, etc. The quality of water depends on various physical, chemical and biological parameters such as turbidity, color, odor, taste, pH, hardness, alkalinity, dissolved solids, dissolved oxygen, bacteria, etc. The quality of water should meet the standards and guidelines prescribed by various authorities such as WHO, BIS, CPCB, etc. The quantity of water supply depends on various factors such as population, demand, consumption, losses, etc. The quantity of water supply should be sufficient to meet the present and future needs of the consumers.


Methods of Collection and Conveyance of Water




The methods of collection and conveyance of water depend on the type and location of the source. For surface water sources, the methods include intake structures, canals, pipes, pumps, etc. For groundwater sources, the methods include wells, boreholes, tubewells, handpumps, etc. The collection and conveyance of water should be done in such a way that the water is protected from contamination, leakage, wastage, etc.


Principles and Design of Water Treatment Plants




The principles and design of water treatment plants involve the application of various processes and techniques to improve the quality of water and make it suitable for the intended use. The processes and techniques include screening, sedimentation, coagulation, flocculation, filtration, disinfection, softening, aeration, etc. The design of water treatment plants depends on various factors such as raw water quality, treated water quality, flow rate, capacity, cost, etc. The design of water treatment plants should be done in accordance with the standards and specifications given by various authorities such as CPHEEO, IS codes, etc.


Distribution Systems and Appurtenances of Water Supply




The distribution systems and appurtenances of water supply are the components that deliver the treated water from the treatment plant to the consumers. The distribution systems include pipes, valves, fittings, joints, meters, hydrants, etc. The appurtenances include service connections, storage tanks, pressure tanks, booster pumps, etc. The distribution systems and appurtenances should be designed and constructed in such a way that they ensure adequate pressure, flow and quality of water at all points of use. They should also be easy to operate and maintain.


Waste Water Engineering




Waste water engineering is a sub-discipline of environmental engineering that deals with the collection, treatment and disposal of wastewater. Wastewater is the used or unwanted water that is generated from various sources such as domestic, industrial, agricultural, stormwater runoff, etc. Wastewater engineering aims to prevent or minimize the adverse effects of wastewater on human health and environment.


Characteristics and Classification of Wastewater




The characteristics and classification of wastewater depend on various physical, chemical and biological parameters such as temperature, color, odor, solids content, BOD (biochemical oxygen demand), COD (chemical oxygen demand), nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), pathogens (bacteria, viruses), heavy metals (lead, mercury), organic compounds (pesticides, phenols), etc. The characteristics and classification of wastewater help to determine the degree and type of treatment required for its disposal or reuse. The wastewater can be classified into two types: domestic wastewater and industrial wastewater. Domestic wastewater is the wastewater that is generated from household activities such as bathing, washing, cooking, etc. Industrial wastewater is the wastewater that is generated from industrial processes such as manufacturing, mining, power generation, etc.


Methods of Disposal and Treatment of Wastewater




The methods of disposal and treatment of wastewater depend on the quality and quantity of wastewater and the availability and suitability of disposal sites or reuse options. The methods of disposal include natural methods (such as land application, infiltration, evaporation) and artificial methods (such as discharge into surface water bodies or ocean). The methods of treatment include preliminary treatment (such as screening, gritting, skimming), primary treatment (such as sedimentation, flotation), secondary treatment (such as activated sludge, trickling filter, rotating biological contactor), tertiary treatment (such as filtration, disinfection, membrane processes) and advanced treatment (such as reverse osmosis, ion exchange, adsorption). The methods of disposal and treatment should be selected and designed in such a way that they meet the standards and regulations prescribed by various authorities such as CPCB, SPCBs, MoEFCC, etc.


Types and Design of Sewerage Systems and Sewage Treatment Plants




The types and design of sewerage systems and sewage treatment plants involve the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of sewerage systems and sewage treatment plants. Sewerage systems are the networks of pipes and appurtenances that collect and convey wastewater from the sources to the treatment plants. Sewerage systems are the networks of pipes and appurtenances that collect and convey wastewater from the sources to the treatment plants. Sewerage systems can be classified into two types: separate systems and combined systems. Separate systems have separate pipes for sanitary sewage and stormwater runoff, while combined systems have a single pipe for both. Sewage treatment plants are the facilities that treat the wastewater before its disposal or reuse. Sewage treatment plants can be classified into two types: centralized plants and decentralized plants. Centralized plants treat the wastewater from a large area or population, while decentralized plants treat the wastewater from a small area or population. The design of sewerage systems and sewage treatment plants depends on various factors such as wastewater characteristics, flow rate, topography, land use, climate, cost, etc. The design of sewerage systems and sewage treatment plants should be done in accordance with the standards and specifications given by various authorities such as CPHEEO, IS codes, etc.


Disposal and Reuse of Sludge and Effluent




The disposal and reuse of sludge and effluent are the final steps in wastewater engineering. Sludge is the solid or semi-solid residue that is generated from the treatment processes. Effluent is the treated wastewater that is discharged from the treatment plant. The disposal and reuse of sludge and effluent depend on their quality and quantity and the availability and suitability of disposal sites or reuse options. The disposal of sludge can include methods such as landfilling, incineration, composting, anaerobic digestion, etc. The reuse of sludge can include applications such as soil amendment, fertilizer, biogas production, etc. The disposal of effluent can include methods such as discharge into surface water bodies or ocean, infiltration into groundwater, evaporation, etc. The reuse of effluent can include applications such as irrigation, industrial cooling, aquaculture, toilet flushing, etc. The disposal and reuse of sludge and effluent should be done in such a way that they do not cause any adverse effects on human health and environment. They should also comply with the standards and regulations prescribed by various authorities such as CPCB, SPCBs, MoEFCC, etc.


Solid Waste Management




Solid waste management is a sub-discipline of environmental engineering that deals with the generation, collection, transport, processing and disposal of solid waste. Solid waste is any discarded material that is not liquid or gas. It includes municipal solid waste (MSW), industrial solid waste (ISW), hazardous waste (HW), biomedical waste (BMW), electronic waste (e-waste), etc. Solid waste management aims to reduce the quantity and toxicity of solid waste and maximize its resource recovery potential.


Sources, Composition and Effects of Solid Waste




The sources of solid waste can be classified into two types: anthropogenic sources and natural sources. Anthropogenic sources include households, commercial establishments, industries, institutions, construction sites, etc. Natural sources include agricultural residues, animal wastes, fallen leaves, etc. The composition of solid waste depends on various factors such as source type, climate, culture, etc. The composition of solid waste affects its physical and chemical properties, such as moisture content, calorific value, density, etc. The effects of solid waste on human health and environment depend on the type and quantity of solid waste and the methods of management. The effects of solid waste can include aesthetic nuisance, odor, vermin infestation, fire hazard, groundwater contamination, air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, etc.


Methods of Collection, Transport and Disposal of Solid Waste

Techniques of Recycling, Recovery and Conversion of Solid Waste




The techniques of recycling, recovery and conversion of solid waste involve the separation and processing of solid waste to recover useful materials or energy from it. Recycling is the process of transforming waste materials into new products or raw materials for further use. Recovery is the process of extracting useful substances or energy from waste materials. Conversion is the process of changing the physical or chemical form of waste materials to produce useful products or energy. The techniques of recycling, recovery and conversion include source separation, source separation, material recovery facilities (MRFs), composting facilities, anaerobic digestion facilities, pyrolysis plants, gasification plants, etc. The techniques of recycling, recovery and conversion can reduce the amount and toxicity of solid waste and increase its resource value. They can also provide environmental and economic benefits such as saving energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, creating jobs, generating income, etc.


Air Pollution




Air pollution is a sub-discipline of environmental engineering that deals with the prevention and control of the emission and dispersion of pollutants into the atmosphere. Air pollutants are any substances that have harmful effects on humans, animals, plants or materials. They include particulate matter (PM), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), heavy metals (Pb, Hg), etc. Air pollution can cause various health problems such as respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, etc. It can also cause environmental problems such as acid rain, smog, global warming, etc.


Sources, Types and Effects of Air Pollutants




The sources of air pollutants can be classified into two types: natural sources and anthropogenic sources. Natural sources include volcanic eruptions, forest fires, dust storms, etc. Anthropogenic sources include combustion of fossil fuels, industrial processes, agricultural activities, transportation, etc. The types of air pollutants depend on their physical state and chemical composition. They can be classified into two types: primary pollutants and secondary pollutants. Primary pollutants are those that are emitted directly from the sources, such as SO2, NOx, CO, etc. Secondary pollutants are those that are formed by the chemical reactions of primary pollutants with other substances in the atmosphere, such as O3, SO3, NO2, etc. The effects of air pollutants depend on their concentration, duration of exposure and sensitivity of the receptors. The effects of air pollutants can include respiratory irritation, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer, cardiovascular diseases, eye irritation, reduced visibility, crop damage, corrosion of metals, etc.


Standards and Monitoring of Air Quality




The standards and monitoring of air quality involve the establishment and measurement of the acceptable levels of air pollutants in the ambient air. The standards of air quality are the legal limits or guidelines that specify the maximum permissible concentration of air pollutants for the protection of human health and environment. The standards of air quality are set by various authorities such as WHO, CPCB, SPCBs, MoEFCC, etc. The monitoring of air quality is the systematic observation and measurement of the concentration and dispersion of air pollutants in the ambient air. The monitoring of air quality is done by various methods such as manual methods, automatic methods, passive methods, etc. The monitoring of air quality helps to assess the status and trends of air pollution and its impacts on human health and environment. It also helps to evaluate the effectiveness of the prevention and control measures.


Methods of Prevention and Control of Air Pollution




The methods of prevention and control of air pollution involve the application of various technologies and strategies to reduce or eliminate the emission and dispersion of pollutants into the atmosphere. The methods of prevention and control of air pollution can be classified into two types: source control and receptor control. Source control is the reduction or elimination of pollutants at the point of origin, such as fuel switching, fuel switching, energy efficiency, emission control devices, etc. Receptor control is the reduction or elimination of pollutants at the point of impact, such as indoor air quality improvement, personal protection devices, health care facilities, etc. The methods of prevention and control of air pollution should be based on the best available technology and the best environmental practices. They should also comply with the standards and regulations prescribed by various authorities such as CPCB, SPCBs, MoEFCC, etc.


Air Pollution Control Devices and Their Design




Air pollution control devices are the equipment that are used to remove or reduce the emission of pollutants from the sources. Air pollution control devices can be classified into two types: particulate control devices and gaseous control devices. Particulate control devices are those that remove or reduce the emission of particulate matter (PM) from the sources. Particulate control devices include mechanical collectors, wet scrubbers, fabric filters (baghouses), electrostatic precipitators, etc. Gaseous control devices are those that remove or reduce the emission of gaseous pollutants from the sources. Gaseous control devices include combustion systems (thermal oxidizers), condensers, absorbers, adsorbers, biological degradation, etc. The design of air pollution control devices depends on various factors such as pollutant characteristics, gas stream characteristics, performance requirements, cost, etc. The design of air pollution control devices should be done in accordance with the standards and specifications given by various authorities such as CPCB, SPCBs, MoEFCC, etc.
