Workshops for Water & Wastewater Operators

Water

21st Century Process Control Techniques in the Water & Wastewater System

All water/wastewater quality verification used to monitor or process manage our water and wastewater systems, are based upon six key methods. This combination interactive lecture reviews these key methods, demonstrates there proper protocol, to let operators choose the best method based upon a series of criteria. Gravimetric, Colorimetric, Titrimetric, Turbimetric, Electrometric and Nephelometric verification/selection process is all about choices. Questions like: How do I choose the best method? What criteria are used to select the best testing procedures for results reporting and process control? What are my real cost in each method available, What are the regulatory requirements? What about training issues? What are the requirements to verify and confirm these results. All these questions are addressed and explored.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, operators should be able to:

  • Know and define the six key testing protocol used in applications, management and reporting in the water and wastewater process.
  • Review these six key test methods to determine which method is best for control and managing that process.
  • Choose the best method for a specific application based upon specific technical skill, regulatory requirements, verification needs, and real cost factors associated with sampling, reagent handling and disposal.

This program is a license renewal workshop for drinking water and wastewater operators and approved for 6 contact hours by the Ohio EPA under the course number OEPA-B569831-OM Both DW & WW.

Chasing the Thermal Demons From the Process

Take what you know about how temperature affects your water/wastewater process, then be prepared to take a 21st century viewpoint. First, let’s review the various water/wastewater processes, and discuss the net effect temperature has on just about every facet of the plant. Next, we’ll take a look at the six most common apparatus used to measure temperature. Compare and contrast this apparatus to find the right measurement tool. Lest we forget, that all temperature measurement apparatus must be routinely and regularly calibrated, we review common calibration protocol demonstrating the typical 0C DI ice and 100C DI boiling water calibration process. See how important the NIST traceable reference is to accurate temperature measurements. Find out why proper documentation is the key to meeting most regulatory requirements. After taking this class, you will have a whole different perspective on the role temperature plays in the process.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, operators should be able to:

  • Remind operators that the most measured parameter is also the least regarded.
  • Understand ALL Water/wastewater work tasks relate directly to temperature.
  • Learn the six most common temperature measurement apparatus and how to compare and contrast features of each.
  • Understand the thermometer calibration and traceability protocol.
