9/26/2023 - #7199: Preventing Major Events at Water & Wastewater Systems through Good Practices
Operators and superintendents must understand that many of the common practices utilized at water and wastewater systems can lead to potential major issues at their facilities, if not addressed. First, we will look at the lack of verification of even the very basic chemicals delivered to our facilities, document case histories where events have occurred, and show how simple and easy a verification program is to establish. Next, we will cover other operational monitoring issues, specifically DPD Chlorine tests, that could be interference and what operations personnel can to do to mitigate these interferences. Lastly, why infrastructure age requires extra vigilance to prevent system contamination, why water stagnation and biofilm formation can lead to bacterial contamination, and how operations can minimize these issues with simple low-cost steps.
