WATR 150
Team Project Course
With increasing emphasis on personnel initiative in the workplace, it is essential that one knows how to recognize, define, and analyze problems and develop workable solutions to correct them. This course provides those skills. At the beginning of the semester, the entire team will decide on the type of water or wastewater project. The students will be responsible for the development of a budget, public relations, project plans and time schedules, drawings, calculations, and presentations, and physically work together to “build” and "conduct" the project.

WATR 151
Team Project Course II
The Team Project Course II will be a continuation of Team Project Course I. This course will focus on bringing to completion the project that was thoroughly planned out in the first section. As with the Team Project I course, students will be responsible for the operation of a budget, public relations, time schedules, plans, presentations, and finalization of the project. The student teams will be required to finish the project and present the project to the Water Advisory Board before grades are submitted. This course will also incorporate State exam and co-op preparation. Prerequisite: WATR-150.

WATR 220
Industrial Solutions
To familiarize the student with the operation and control of specific industrial waste treatment technologies which discharge to surface waters, land, or for recycle, as well as those with Industrial Pretreatment Permits. Both biodegradable and toxic wastes will be considered; physical/ chemical treatment, neutralization, solids disposal, product reclamation, and safety issues will be covered. Industrial process water treatment and groundwater remediation will be taken separately. Attention will be focused on specific treatment processes; mathematical calculations for design and process evaluation and control will be included.
