COURSE DESCRIPTION The Drinking Water Modules are intended to provide a broad introductory background on drinking water quality and regulatory issues to give a public health officer a good basic understanding of drinking water production, contaminant monitoring and distribution. The modules cover regulatory requirements, treatment technologies, source protection and health issues associated with microbial and chemical contaminants that are regulated and which must be addressed by water suppliers. They put extra emphasis on microbial contamination and management because microbial contamination is the predominant risk that faces any water supplier. Microbial and other water quality concerns start with the source water, they may require appropriate and effective water treatment, and protection during distribution so that contamination does not occur between the treatment plant and the consumer. *Note - This course is part of the Environmental Public Health Online Course (EPHOC) certificate program on this LMS.
