Drinking Water

Drinking water is the only food that is delivered to all of our houses and workplaces, on demand, 24 hours per day. This drinking water is produced from either groundwater or surface/lake water through a number of different processes. The focus in this course will be on understanding surface water processes since surface water normally requires more treatment. This water is then distributed and must arrive at the consumer through a network of pipes. The water that is delivered must be both safe, from a chemical and microbiological perspective, and be aesthetically pleasing in taste and smell. How can this be accomplished and what can go wrong? What does WHO´s guidelines say and what laws need to be followed? How can modelling be applied to understand weaknesses and possibilities? These and other specialist topics will be addressed in this 3 HP doctoral level course. It will take place online, and in Gothenburg and Lund and include lectures, problem solving exercises and a course project.
