Outline and Purpose of the Course Water resource management from the points of both water quantity and water quality is described, for example, mechanism of water pollution and history, and current conditions of water quality standard, Water quality indexes and their analytical technologies including biological methods and instrumental analytical technique are explained as well. Water and wastewater treatment technologies of physical, chemical and biological process including energy and resource recovery are expound.
Course Goals To understand management methods of water environment and evaluation of water environment condition.

To acquire technologies of water and wastewater treatment enough to apply them from the point of creation of recycling-oriented society.
Schedule and Contents ・Water pollution its history and Water quality standard(1 time):
Introduction of this class. Basic and major water pollution and their generation mechanism are explained, and the history of water pollution and solution are introduced.

・Water quality indexes and analysis(2 times)
Basic knowledge for Water quality indexes and their analysis including instrumental analysis are explained.

・Water pollution and evaluation(5 times)
Water pollution characteristics in rivers, lakes and sea, and countermeasures are explained. Behaviors of recalcitrant organic compounds and emerging contaminants such as PPCPs(Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products) and EDCs(Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals) are explained, and their impacts on water environment are expounded. Based on the understanding, watershed management is explained.

・Water and wastewater treatment(5 times)
Basic countermeasure against water pollution is to remove the pollutants from the wastewater. Fundamental technologies are introduced categorizing into physical, chemical, and biological processes, and each process is explained in detail. Disinfection and water reuse are also introduced from the points of chemicals management.

・Resource recovery and system(1 time):
Resource recovery is important from the points of both creation of recycling-oriented society and prevention of global warming. Technologies and systems accomplishing energy and resource recovery from wastewater is introduced and explained

・Final examination/ Learning achievement evaluation(1 time):

・Feedback(1 time):
Evaluation Methods and Policy Evaluation will be based on one written examination.
Course Requirements None
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) Review with related literature is strongly recommended in order to understand broadly based knowledge and to obtain useful information.
