Workshops for Water & Wastewater Operators

Water

Verifying the Water Wastewater Process

Description

All water/wastewater quality verification used to monitor or process manage our water and wastewater systems, are based upon Six (6) key methods.

This combination interactive lecture reviews these key methods, demonstrates the 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 is 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.

Please Note!

Tips & Tools for Better Process Management & Monitoring

Description

This Interactive workshop uses a combination of computer based graphics, interactive discussions, and visual demonstrations to encourage water/ wastewater operations personnel to explore simplified on-site monitoring tools and techniques to maintain the treatment process at peak operational performance.

Today's water/wastewater operator must constantly monitor their treatment process to meet this century's demands for water quality. Process monitoring especially off-site monitoring can be resource intensive. This workshop offers the operator the opportunity to explore alternative monitoring tools and methods to simplify, save time and potentially, dollars.

The program asks the operator to examine Reduction/Oxidation(REDOX) and simple Alkalinity monitoring as bonafide tools that offer real-time process control answers providing data to quickly assess current conditions, determine, problematic areas, to make operational changes.

It also explores simplified monitoring methods for nutrient measurements, and residuals measurement like Fluoride, pH, and Dissolved Oxygen currently being measured by complex analytical methods requiring sample pretreatment, verifications, and complex sample preparations. Results quite appropriate for regulatory reporting, but resource intensive for operational information needs.

Learning Objectives

  • Encourage operations personnel to use simplified on-site process monitoring tool and techniques.
  • Monitor resource conservation, in time and expense.
  • Better process control though simple time-saving monitoring techniques.
