Environmental Chemistry and Analysis (3) Chemical principles, interpretation, and methods of analysis for groundwater, water supply, wastewater treatment, stream pollution.
CHEM 301 Environmental Chemistry and Analysis (3)
The objective of the course is to introduce students to water quality chemistry and the associated laboratory analytical techniques commonly used in groundwater, water supply, wastewater treatment, stream pollution control. This course will be instructed with classroom lectures, laboratory exercises, and a project. These laboratory exercises include pH, solids, turbidity, alkalinity, acidity, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand, total organic carbon, chlorine residual, chlorine demand, nitrogen, phosphorus, nitrate, sulfate, chloride, hardness, and metals. This course involves two lecture periods and one laboratory period each week. The students will be evaluated with quizzes, midterm examination, final examination, laboratory reports, and a project report.
The course has a prerequisites of a two-semester General Chemistry course and the associated laboratory courses. This course is a prerequisite for Water Supply and Pollution Control which is one of core courses for Environmental Engineering Program.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
