Question

a. Indicate a typical schematic of a Conventional Water Treatment Flow Process from inlet to the outlet discharge. The sequence must be shown clearly

Answer #1

**1. INLET** : RAW WATER IS COLLECTED FROM NEAREST
WATER RESOURCE (POND/LAKE/RIVER/GROUND WATER)

**2. SCREENING** : WATER IS FILTERED FOR ANY
FLOATING DEBRIS, IF ANY

**3. COAGULATION** : CHEMICALS ARE ADDED IN WATER
FOR OTHER FLOATING PARTICLES TO SETTLE QUICKLY

**4. FLOCCULATION** : THE WATER AFTER ADDING
COAGULANT IS MIXED FOR FLOCS FORMATION

**5.SEDIMENTATION**: THE FLOCKS FORMED ARE ALLOWED
TO SETTLE

**6. FILTRATION**: THE WATER IS FILTERED TO CAPTURE
MINUTE FLOATING PARTICLE

**7. DISINFECTION**: DISINFECTANT IS ADDED TO KILL
ANY HARMFUL VIRUS/BACTERIA PRESENT IN THE WATER

**8. STORAGE**: THE WATER IS THEN STORED IN STORAGE
PONDS OR WATER TANKS

**9. OUTLET**: THE STORED WATER IS DISTRIBUTED TO
THE HOUSEHOLDS, etc...

A particular swimming pool has one inlet and one outlet
pipe.
The diameter of the inlet pipe is 1 cm.
The diameter of the outlet pipe is 10 cm.
The average velocity of the flow in both inlet and outlet pipes
is 0.1 m/s.
The pipes are very old and rusty, so e = 0.2 mm.
The dynamic viscosity is 1 x 10-3 N-s/m^2 The kinematic
viscosity is 1 x 10-6 m^2/s

A rectangular horizontal-flow sedimentation basin in a
conventional water treatment plant has been designed to treat a
flow of 50,000 m3 /day. It has a length = 80 m, width = 20 m, and
depth = 3.6 m. For this problem, assume temperature = 20 °C
(density of water = 103 kg/m3 and viscosity = 10-3 kg/m·s) and
laminar flow.
a. What is the hydraulic detention time? Does this meet the
typical criteria for this type of sedimentation basin?
b....

Draw a neat treatment flow chart for a municipal wastewater
treatment. Treated wastewater will be discharged into Red River
(Fargo, ND). Please label all units and show flow directions. Also
indicate (in the flow chart) where sludge will be generated and
chemicals will be added. You can use either a trickling filter or
activated sludge process as your biological treatment process.
Draw a neat treatment flow chart for a drinking water treatment.
Source of water is groundwater (West Fargo, ND)....

a small lake contains 60,000 gal of pure water. There is an
inlet stream of pure water into the lake, as well as an outlet
stream, both flowing at a rate of 100 gal/min. Suppose someone
starts pouring water into the lake at the rate of 10 gal/min that
contains 5lbs/gal of a chemical, and they do this for 8 hours.
While this happens, the inlet stream of pure water is unchanged,
and the outflow rate from the lake remains...

When doing an adiabatic flash calculation for a continuous flow
process where a liquid at high pressure is “flashed” to lower
pressure to produce a mixture of gas and liquid you know:
Inlet: Temperature (T1), Pressure (P1), molar flowrate (F) and
mole fractions (zi).
Outlet: Pressure (P2)
For this adiabatic flash:
a) Draw a picture and clearly label the unknown variables
b) Write down the equations (in terms of the above variables)
that you would have to solve in order...

Water at 10 oC flows at a mass flow rate of 15 kg/s through a
nozzle that converges from a 10 cm diameter to 2 cm diameter. If
the outlet pressure is 1 bar, calculate the inlet pressure (Answer:
12.4 bar).

It is desired to absorb ammonia from air into water
producing an outlet gas stream with 0.5mol% ammonia. equilibrium
data given as y=1.414x in mole fraction. The counter current column
has three equilibrium stages. Entering gas stream has a total of 10
kgmole/hr and has 80% mil NH3. Inlet water stream contains 2% mil
ammonia. Find required flow rate entering liquid stream and flow
rate of all outlet stream.

environmental engineering wastewater treatment. waste water
treatment.
1- In a 2 steps cascade aeration, each step increases oxygen
concentration from 10 % to 30 % of saturation level. If the initial
oxygen concentration is 20 % of saturation level and minimum oxygen
is required to be 5 mg/L at the end of aeration, is the system
efficient or not? Show your calculations. Inlet water temperature
is 15 C (Cs = 10.2 mg/L)
2- Design flocculation tanks (2 tanks, 5 compartments...

You have been retained to design a wastewater treatment plant using
a conventional activated sludge process for a town of 40,000
people. The industrial flow contribution to the sewer system is
300,000 gallons per day. Effluent discharge standards require
effluent BOD5 and total suspended solids concentration of <10
mg/l.
Assume the following design criteria are applicable:
Domestic sewage flow = 100 gal/cap/day (including I/I)
BOD loading = 0.18 lbs/cap/day
TSS loading = 0.20 lbs/cap/day
BOD removal in primary = 33%...

A conventional activated sludge plant treating a domestic flow
of 150 ML/d is operated at a SRT of 10 d with a MLVSS of 3500 ppm.
The activated sludge plant is required to reduce the influent BOD
from 200 ppm to less than 10 ppm prior to discharge. The discharge
from the aeration basin is clarified, such that the clarifier
overflow contains no particulate material and the MLVSS of the
recycle stream is 8000 ppm. You are required to determine...
