Participants will benefit from a transfer of know-how in the following areas:
Conventional water treatment, which will concern surface water, the main water resource in many countries, including Morocco, where 64% of drinking water comes from surface water treatment.
The specific treatment, which concerns the elimination of dissolved pollution in groundwater: it concerns mainly the elimination of iron, nitrates, ammonium, and fluorides.
Session 1: The classic treatment
Characterization of Water Resources: Sanitary Survey Concept
Processing stream: description and design criteria
Process performance indicators and compliance with potability standards
Session 2: Specific Treatment
Focus on resources requiring specific treatment:
Sources of pollution
Effect of climate change
Presentation of specific treatment techniques: principles and performance indicators
Desalination-demineralization techniques: applications to fresh water
Denitration and denitrification
Removal of ammonium
Elimination of hydrogen sulphide
Fluoride removal: pilot studies
Process performance indicators and compliance with potability standards and standards
According to the definition given by the WHO Guidelines, safe drinking water does not present any significant risk to the health of a person who consumes it throughout his or her lifetime, taking into account any variations in sensitivity, between the different stages of life. The chemical and bacteriological composition of drinking water must therefore comply with the concentration limits recommended by these directives, as required by the standards.
Compliance with the WHO Guidelines can only be guaranteed through the implementation of treatment and conditioning processes, allowing adjustments to the parameters present in excess in the raw water. Overall, the raw water that can be mobilized for the production of drinking water can be classified into three groups related respectively to surface water, groundwater, and salt water.
Treatment is a pivotal step in drinking water supply systems. The knowledge to be transferred to the beneficiaries will be drawn mainly from feedback and case studies that will be shared during the training.
Who should attend
The various modules of this training are aimed at engineers and technicians working in the field of drinking water production
