Water and Wastewater Technology; A Suggested 2-Year Post High School Curriculum.
Department of the Interior, Washington, DC.
This curriculum guide with accompanying course outlines was developed by technical education specialists for teacher use in conducting courses of instruction for the preparation of water and wastewater technicians. The content objectives are to provide students with a background of knowledge in the diverse areas of applied sanitation which relate to water and wastewater: a foundation in microbiology and basic hydraulics, sanitary chemistry and biology, water supply and wastewater collection, water purification, wastewater treatment, and water pollution control. The material is to be used over a 2-year period of systematic instruction at the post secondary level of education. Teachers of sanitation subjects must have special competencies derived from training in technical subject matter, practice, and instructional experience. Students should be high school graduates with reasonable maturity and seriousness of purpose and whose educational backgrounds include chemistry, physics, and mathematics, including algebra and geometry. In addition to a 265-entry bibliography of text and references, information on technical education procedure, facilities, equipment and cost, and scientific and technical societies is included. (CH)
