Water System Hydraulics and Backflow Prevention 5820

Water System Hydraulics and Backflow Principles    4 TCH’s

 

Backflow of contaminants into your water distribution system can be a public health concern. Identifying high risk service connections in the water distribution system is the first step in a Cross-Connection Control Plan.   Water operators will learn water system hydraulics and the events in the water distribution system that can cause contaminants to enter the system.  Preventing backflow in the water distribution system can be accomplished with cross connection control devices.  The right cross connection control device is determined by the level of risk the service connection presents.  This class is recommended for all water and wastewater operators.

E-Coli Contamination - Chlorine Disinfection 63020

E-Coli  Contamination Prevention– Chlorine Chemistry Disinfection  6 TCH’s

Water treatment plant operators work diligently to ensure that harmful microbes can not enter the water treatment process or the water distribution system.  Attendees will learn about E-Coli and the health effects it poses to consumers.  E-Coli can be fatal to vulnerable populations.  Attendees will watch the movie “Betrayed”  The Walkerton Ontario e-coli outbreak which infected 2300 people and killed 7.  The water operators lacked training and ethics which ultimately “Betrayed” consumers that trusted them. 

Chlorine disinfection is the last barrier that water treatment plant operators have in preventing e-coli from reaching consumers and infecting them.  If e-coli has found its way into your water system, chlorine disinfection, if done correctly will kill the e-coli and your consumers will not be affected.  Attendees will learn how chlorine works and the chemistry that needs to happen – Contact time requirements – Most water operators like to keep chlorine residuals low to appease the consumers, attendees will learn the vulnerabilities of their water distribution systems and how to measure the risk factors that require you to make sure chlorine residuals are at a level that will kill e-coli before reaching consumers.

  • Who should attend:  This class is approved for water and wastewater renewal credit hours  6 TCH’s
  • Anyone using chlorine should attend this class and learn about e-coli and how chlorine works to prevent consumers from getting sick

·       Chlorine chemistry that produces free available chlorine

·       How pH influences the chlorine disinfection process

·       Contact time

·       Shock chlorination

E-Coli Contamination - Chlorine Disinfection 51920

E-Coli  Contamination Prevention– Chlorine Chemistry Disinfection  6 TCH’s

Water treatment plant operators work diligently to ensure that harmful microbes can not enter the water treatment process or the water distribution system.  Attendees will learn about E-Coli and the health effects it poses to consumers.  E-Coli can be fatal to vulnerable populations.  Attendees will watch the movie “Betrayed”  The Walkerton Ontario e-coli outbreak which infected 2300 people and killed 7.  The water operators lacked training and ethics which ultimately “Betrayed” consumers that trusted them. 

Chlorine disinfection is the last barrier that water treatment plant operators have in preventing e-coli from reaching consumers and infecting them.  If e-coli has found its way into your water system, chlorine disinfection, if done correctly will kill the e-coli and your consumers will not be affected.  Attendees will learn how chlorine works and the chemistry that needs to happen – Contact time requirements – Most water operators like to keep chlorine residuals low to appease the consumers, attendees will learn the vulnerabilities of their water distribution systems and how to measure the risk factors that require you to make sure chlorine residuals are at a level that will kill e-coli before reaching consumers.

  • Who should attend:  This class is approved for water and wastewater renewal credit hours  6 TCH’s
  •  Anyone using chlorine should attend this class and learn about e-coli and how chlorine works to prevent consumers from getting sick

Permit Required Confined Space Entry - Trench and Excavation Safety 6220

Permit Required Confined Space Entry – Trenching and Excavation Safety  6 TCH’s

 Water and Wastewater Treatment facilities contain many confined spaces which can be dangerous to treatment plant personnel to enter.  How do we inventory and determine which spaces are dangerous and which are not?  This course will teach attendees how to inventory confined spaces and determine if they are “Permit required Confined Spaces” or “Confined spaces”. 

Attendees will learn:

·        How to determine if the space is safe to enter – How to make the space safe to enter.

·       Dangers of confined spaces and safe entry procedures

·       Permit required confined space safety equipment

·        How to enter a permit required confined space and how to use the required safety equipment required to enter permit spaces

·       Rescue planning becomes the priority in permit required confined space entry and ensures that no one gets injured or becomes a fatality

 

Trenching and excavation is a necessary part of the job for most water and wastewater operators – distribution and collection personnel.  New personnel are most vulnerable to getting injured or even becoming a fatality if they are not trained in the dangers before attempting to work in or near a trench. 

Attendees will learn:

·        How to recognize the dangers associated with trench and excavations

·        Safety practices of trenching and excavations

·       Safety equipment required

 

  • This course is recommended for all water and wastewater personnel  - especially new personnel with no training
  • This course is for water and wastewater renewal credit hours
