Students are provided with an introduction to the study of water treatment processes and distribution. The physical, chemical and biological characteristics of source water will be examined along with current regulations, methods of treatment and issues surrounding the provision of potable water. Students participate in the evaluation of common physical, chemical and bacteriological testing. Guest speakers and field trips expose students to real-world scenarios in the water treatment industry. The content of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) Entry Level Drinking Water Operator course will be covered.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.
