1/11/2022 - #8884: Wastewater Bacteria (Live Online - ZOOM)
Wastewater Bacteria live online (4-hour live-online presentation) identifies the major groups of bacteria and archaea (methanogens) that are found in wastewater treatment processes and reviews the roles performed by the bacteria and archaea. The roles include beneficial biological activity and negative biological activity. Operational measures to support beneficial biological activity are reviewed as well as operational measures to overcome negative biological activity. Bacterial groups reviewed include: 1) denitrifying bacteria, 2) fermentative bacteria, 3) filamentous bacteria, 4) floc-forming bacteria, 5) hydrolytic bacteria, 6), indicator bacteria, 7) nitrifying bacteria, 8) pathogenic bacteria, 9) phosphorus-accumulating bacteria, 10) sulfur bacteria, 11) tetras and 12) Zoogloeal (slime bulking) bacteria. In addition to a review of the bacterial groups and methanogens, bacterial growth factors are presented. The factors include: 1) trophism for carbon and energy, 2) response to free molecular oxygen, 3) pH, 4) alkalinity, 5) temperature and 6) nutrients.
Zoom information and student guide are included in your order confirmation.
Each operator must be able to log into Zoom individually with a single device for Contact Hours**.
Prior to class, attendees will need their own zoom account which includes their name, phone number and possibly email address.
Attendees can use a computer, phone, or tablet to attend program, however, for the best experience, a device with a web cam and speaker is best.
**Attendees can share a computer for viewing. But, each attendee must also log into a device individually (e.g. View on computer at the plant as a group, but also log into Zoom individually with your phone). Attendees must individually answer periodic poll questions and take quizzes during program. This is necessary to verify attendance and participation. This will involve typing into a device.
Break from 11:10 - 12:10
