Contents

The global contents of this subject are the following:

 

Current technical-health regulations on drinking water issues in Spain and the European Union. WHO guidelines. 

Health criteria for establishing limits for chemical substances and qualityparameters. 
The toxicological properties data needed to establish daily intake. Consumption criteria and dietary supply through water. Criteria based on the toxicological limit. 
Criteria based on the precaution principle. 
Chemical analytical limits criteria. Quality parameters in drinking waters. 
Tap waters and bottled waters. 
Generalities. Organoleptic parameters. Physical/Chemical parameters. Anions. Cations. Elements and compounds considered toxic and/or undesirable. 
Organic micropollutants. 
Microbiological parameters. 
Certain parameters of special interest. Lead, arsenic, pesticides, chlorine-derived elements, water treatment substances, copper, boron, nitrates and nitrites, microtoxins, others. From each one: pollutant sources, health problems, socio-economic problems relating to their application, control methods. Risk management and  decision making. 
Management responsibilities. Assessing the risks involved in temporary pollutions.Decision making should limits be exceeded. Assessing pollutants not considered in the regulations. Incidences in the food industry
Methods to control and analyse drinking waters. Sampling and frequency of controls. Characteristics of the control methods. Some representative examples of the control techniques used. Bottled mineral waters and medicinal waters. Concepts, specific regulations, and quality and labelling criteria. 
The water quality analyses laboratory. Authorising laboratories. Quality control of hydrologic analyses. Good Laboratory Practices. Selecting an analytical method. Selecting a sample collection method. UNE regulations. ISO regulations. CustodyChain. Interpreting the results of a water analysis. Interpreting the results of a physical analysis. Interpreting the results of a chemical analysis. 
Health aspects relating to water quality
Environmental aspects relating to the quality of drinking waters. 
The technological and socio-economic problems to be implemented.

Teaching method

  • The student activity will be the development of a report-project. Some of the lectures will be devoted to presentations by Professor but students will participate by presenting the progress of your project or issue that has been assigned and all partners participate in the discussion. Eventually the student shall deliver a copy of the information obtained on the subject, will report very summarized and discussed in class. This procedure can pass the course without review.

Evaluation system

  • Students wishing to prepare a system of project-report (recommended) relieved of making written and will particularly value the acquisition of ability to carry out the project that will be helpful to know how to prepare reports and technical issues defend them in their future professional life.

    Note Theory = [5x (DELIVERIES specific job) + 3x (presentations) + 2x (ASSISTANCE)] / 10.

    If the student can not attend class regularly, in the early going, the teacher may agree with a custom procedure that may be established especially for students in ERASMUS or similar stays or work activity.

    FINAL NOTE = [8x (theory) + 2x (practice)] / 10.

    If not benefiting from the system, the theory mark will be a final written exam. This test will consist of three questions that the student will develop on the subject of the course that includes classes presented by the teacher and the issues presented by students.

    Practices require laboratory assistance and assess the attitude in the laboratory and the results report. Be assigned alternative activities for students with assistance difficult time practices.

    The theory grade or approved practices are preserved for the next grade regardless
