Water Quality and Water Treatment module

  • Understanding and modeling pollutions transfer processes on natural ponds & urbanized area
  • Understandind their impact on the natural and urban environment
  • Developing strategies in terms of planning and pollution control to limit these impacts
  • Ensuring the production of water suitable for various uses (domestic, industrial, ...).


Philippe SECHET


An integrated approach is taken, starting from upstream (on the watershed) and going downstream (towards the receiving waters in the natural environment). This module is divided into three parts: (i) water quality (ii) Waste Water Treatment using bioprocesses (iii) Water Treatment using Physical and Chemical means.
This module is organized around courses and tutored work. It includes applications concerning biogeochemical modeling of rivers and sizing of different unit processes in order to treat water.

A project helps to synthesize and link the different topics taught in this module in a more integrated way. These tutorials and project correspond roughly to 30% of the module (including 20 hours of personal work in addition to classical course sessions)


Bases on Transport Phenomena (Convection-Dispersion-Reaction Equation)(Cf S1, Advanced Fluid Mechanics module).
The module is largely self-consistent on the other points. However, certain items included in this module are discussed in: Hydrology for Engineers (S3) Hydraulics (S3), Geoenvironment (S4) Environmental systems (Hydrosystèmes) (S4)
