Perkasie Regional Authority
Wastewater System Math Refresher: Wastewater operators are required to complete math calculation to assist in operations. This course will review some of the math required to operate a wastewater system.
Food/Microorganism Ratio (F/M) and Mean Cell Residence Time: An activated sludge treatment system is a living ecosystem and requires special care to ensure that the organisms are healthy and provided with the proper environment for them to flourish. There are many factors that can have an effect on the efficiency and overall operations of an activated sludge treatment plant and there are many operational adjustments that need to be made on a daily basis to keep the system running at its best. Two calculations that are often used to determine those adjustments are food/microorganism (F/M) ratio and mean cell residence time (MCRT).
Supplies, materials and lunch is included with registration.
