  • Recap of August 27 Lecture Introduction Course logistics and expectations FE/PE exams 22
  • Housekeeping Items Coastal Cleanup (Sept.21) HW1 Extra Credit HW0 collection Textbook Roll Call Waitlist Office Hours/Emails 23
  • Environmental EIT 24
  • Pathway to Earning PE 25
  • Causes of Environmental Problems? Population increases Rising standard of living  stone age  bronze  iron  plastic  semi-conductor What are the main differences before and after iron age?  Stationary agriculture 26
  • How to Minimize the Human Impacts Public education Conservation Regulation Application of good engineering practices 27
  • Areas of Interests for Environmental Engineers Water treatment Wastewater treatment Air pollution control Solid/Hazardous waste management Site assessment and characterization (Phase I) Soil and groundwater remediation Environmental impact assessment (CEQA/NEPA) Regulation compliance/enforcement 28
  • What Spur the Growth of Environmental Engineering? Environmental disasters Public awareness Environmental regulations Emerging technology, pollution source, treatment Development of analytical chemistry 29
  • Career Perspectives Process/design engineer for treatment plants Water district engineers Regulatory agencies Consulting engineers R&D for new process or equipment Remediation engineer Air/groundwater modeling Planning/management 30
  • What a Good Environmental Engineer Should Know? Chemistry and analytical method Biology, ecology, and physics Geology and hydrogeology Soil, water and air characteristics Environmental regulations Treatment technologies Health and safety issues 31
  • Course Content Environmental regulations Environmental engineering chemistry Unit processes/operations Conceptual design 32
  • Components of the Course Environmental Engineering Chemistry Water Treatment Wastewater Treatment Solid/Hazardous Waste Management Goundwater and Soil Remediation Air Pollution Control Engineering 33
  • Environmental Systems/Media Biosphere - 木 Hydrosphere - 水 Lithosphere - 金 Pedosphere - 土 Atmosphere - 火 Multimedia and interconnected 34
  • Types of Treatment Processes Physical Chemical Biological Thermal 35
  • Selection of Treatment Processes Knowledge Implementability Effectiveness Availability Residual Cost Regulatory approval Public acceptance O&M issues Client’s preference 36
  • Environmental Laws/Regulations Dilemma - now legal, but….? EPA was created in 1970 State regulations should be equivalent or stricter than federal Method of regulations  obtain a permit  monitoring  report violation 37
  • Important Regulations Drinking water: Safe Drinking Water Act (1974) Surface water pollution - Clean Water Act (1972)  priority pollutants, NPDES permits  Wastewater treatment and discharge Air Quality: Clean Air Act  HAPs, MACT Solid/Hazardous Waste  RCRA, CERCLA 38
  • Environmental Ethics Compliance with regulation = $$$ Client relationship Responsibility to the society 39
  • Life-long Learning Why?  Continuously update knowledge and job skill  Promotion or another career track How?  Advanced degree  Professional Societies, CEU  Journals, Internet, distance-schools 40
