9/16/2020 - #7200: Screening Water & Wastewater Systems for Safety, Security, and Toxicity
Routine monitoring of your water quality and systems can lead to significant improvements in effective operations. This course covers daily and weekly practices that any operator can perform for better control of their water/wastewater system. The Activated Sludge Process has limitations in handling toxic influents of unknown origin and strength. Once the bug population is destroyed or inactivated due to toxicity, or loading issues, regrowth is a painful time consuming process. Quick screening of the process can provide real-time decision-making. Simple screening tools such as: Chemical Oxygen Demand tests, Quick Biological scans, Rapid Biological Toxicity Screening, & Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) will be covered. Quick screens of key areas of your distribution for safety/security vulnerabilities can act as an early warning tool. The course will examine case-histories, view low-cost ideas and applications to monitor strategic areas of your distribution system.
Supplies, materials and lunch is included with registration.
