The quality of groundwater used cannot be compromised any longer and the servicing requirements of on-site sewage disposal systems cannot be ignored. With limited funds available to you - the private owner or regulatory agency that has responsibility for inspection, the task of on-site sewage treatment and disposal is becoming very difficult. Industrial wastewater dischargers face a variety of enforcement actions if they are not in compliance with the USA Clean Water Act. This is the case if the discharger is a direct industrial discharger, or is an indirect discharger into a Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW). This course covers the regulations that affect the management of industrial wastewater permitting, effluent guidelines, and associated issues.


This course will cover all aspects of sewage and industrial waste treatment process. It will cover planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance of the modern sewage and effluent treatment plants. Further, this course will cover all aspects of Environmental Protection in Industrial Plants .

With limited funds available to the owners we believe this course will help you to install an effective system. You will learn numerous tips and tricks throughout the course to make it very practical and relevant to your applications.

  • Environmental managers, engineers and environmental professionals
  • Operations, maintenance, inspection and project managers, supervisors and engineers
  • Plant, Mechanical, Maintenance and Design engineers, technicians and staff
  • Municipal planners & engineers
  • Laboratory Staff
  • Anyone responsible for managing and operating sewage treatment facilities
  • Anyone involved with making decisions about the discharge of any industrial pollutants into water should attend this course. The course provides the tools needed to determine compliance with the requirements of their job. The course is designed for industrial wastewater compliance managers and supervisors
