Workshops for Water & Wastewater Operators

Water

True Confessions of a Water/Wastewater Operator

Description

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

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

  • 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.

Please Note!

The Ohio EPA now requires all attendees to have their Core Person ID Number with them to sign in on the day of attendance. Certification of attendance to the Ohio EPA cannot be sent without this number.

Chasing the Thermal Demons From the Process

Description

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 0 C 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

  • Remind operators that the most measured parameter is also the least regarded.
  • 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.
