Screening Water and Wastewater for Safety, Security, and Toxicity

SSCC course number - ENRC 645 ZO1

Ohio EPA approval number - OEPA-B39099-OM

Description

(Wastewaters)The Activated Sludge Process has limitation in handling toxic influents of unknown origin and strength. Once the bug population is destroyed or inactivated due to toxicity, or high BOD loading, regrowth is a painful time consuming process. Time is of the essence here so 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)

(Potable Waters) Learn also how quick screens of key areas of your water system for safety/security venerability, examine case-histories, view low-cost ideas and applications to monitor strategic areas of your water system as an early-warning tool to prevent disinfection residual violations or assess your system for intrusions. Learn about monitoring system components, applications & integration from hardware to data acquisitions and transmission.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about simple low-cost ways to strategically monitor water and wastewaters for intrusions
  • Apply simple measuring tools like ORP, COD, and Oxygen uptakes for quick determinations.
  • How a simple measurement like ORP may provide an early-warning tool for distribution systems.

True Confessions of a Water/Wastewater Operator

SSCC course number – ENRC 601 ZO1

Ohio EPA approval number – OEPA-B426334-OM

OK, how did you set that initial chemical dose last year? Through superb interactive graphics and vibrant animated presentation, the operator will explore the most common chemical dosing mistakes, like “All treatment chemical strengths never change”, “dosage adjustments are only needed when flow and demand change”, “delivered chemical product is always exactly as specified”. Chemical feed pump outputs never vary, simply..... “Set-it & forget it”, or “I need to monitor what in my water”? Let’s lift the veil related to chemical feed and see why chemical strength, pump calibration, product verification, and residual measurements are so important for process management and chemical resource conservation.

Learning Objectives

  • Remind operators about common (10) pitfalls and fallacies related to chemical feed.
  • Offer real time solutions and suggestions to minimize these pitfalls and fallacies.
  • Review typical chemical pump selection techniques.
