Sanitation & Wastewater Treatment Explained
What you'll learn
- Define Sanitation and Wastewater
- Learn the Importance of safe sanitation and wastewater treatment
- Learn how wastewater treatment processes work
- Identify challenges that hinder wastewater managment
- You will learn everything you need to know
Every day, we use water for our basic needs, such as drinking, bathing, cleaning, cooking, and laundry. However, by doing so, we generate every day millions of liters of wastewater which end up in the sewage network.
These sewage networks transport all wastewater to large facilities called wastewater treatment plants. where it undergoes complex transformations to make it less harmful to the receiving ecosystem.
Managing daily flows of millions of liters of wastewater can be challenging, as it threatens public health and ecosystems.
For a better understanding of how cities manage daily generated wastewater fluxes, we will discuss in this course the topics of sanitation, wastewater, and wastewater treatment from many angles.
To do so, we will use the following plan :
Chapter 1: Sanitation & hygiene
Chapter 2: Consequences and challenges of unsafe sanitation
Chapter 3: Wastewater characterization
Chapter 4: Importance of wastewater treatment
Chapter 5: Basic concepts of wastewater treatment
Chapter 6: Wastewater treatment processes
Chapter 7: Challenges of wastewater treatment
By the end of this course, you should be able to have a better understanding of domestic wastewater management works and the importance to have safe sanitation.
I hope you enroll & enjoy the course!

Who this course is for:
- Beginners and general public interested in wastewater management
Hi, I have five years of experience in teaching environmental engineering. I take an interest in sharing knowledge about environmental engineering and science.
I started the brand ‘’Green Courses” which aims to give learners essential knowledge about environmental education so that they can understand better the dangers surrounding planet earth's environment and take action accordingly. The brand also takes a particular interest in water chemistry and water treatment technologies engineering.
Thus, the courses under the brand ‘’Green Courses” aim to:
- Explain major phenomena endangering our environment,
- Raise awareness of environmental issues and dangers surrounding us,
- Provide knowledge about water chemistry and water treatment engineering.
