Water Distribution System Contamination Events - Chlorine Disinfection 6 TCH's 5719

Water Distribution System Contamination Events - Chlorine Disinfection 6 TCH's


The main goal of drinking water treatment is to inactivate or kill microbes. Water treatment operators will better understand the disinfection process if they know more about the microorganisms and contamination events they are trying to control.  The morning training session focuses on Distribution system contamination events.  How does contamination enter the water distribution system - How do we chlorinate after contamination events - water main breaks - water main replacement - Loss of pressure in the distribution system.

The afternoon session focuses on shock chlorination, water main disinfection and how chlorination works.   What is a good residual to maintain in the distribution system?  Disinfection is a critical water treatment process.    Bring questions and experience stories to share.

Lunch will be provided

This course may be used for water and wastewater treatment operator renewal - 6 TCH's

Basic Hydraulics and Backflow Principles 111519

Basic Hydraulics and Backflow Principles  4 TCH's


Hydraulics is the branch of science and technology concerned with the conveyance of liquids through pipes and channels; as water/wastewater treatment plant operators and distribution collection maintenance teams, hydraulics typically works the way it was intended for you.

This course will explore hydraulics concepts that you deal with in your water and wastewater systems every day, good and bad. We will then take a look at hydraulics and how it affects backflow in your system.
What is cross connection control, backsiphonage and back pressure? A written cross connection control program is a necessary administrative tool for controlling the possibility of contamination by cross connections. This class will leave the student with an understanding of hydraulics and how it affects your water and wastewater system. A solid understanding of cross connection control will help the attendee to develop and implement a cross connection control program in their system.
AWWA Manual M-14 is the reference used for this class.

Maintaining Water Quality in the Water Distribution System 6 TCH's 112119

Maintaining Water Quality to the Customers Tap  6 TCH’s
 
The treated Drinking Water leaving your water treatment plant tastes great and is safe to drink. When that top Quality Drinking water hits the distribution system it can become chemically and physically changed and deteriorated by many contaminants such as iron, Bio-slime (microorganisms), cross connections, and contaminants surrounding the distribution piping exterior.
This course will take a close look at the vulnerable areas of the distribution system that can cause poor tasting or contaminated water.
Disinfection by products are one of the major health concern contaminants that can be formed in the distribution system. Where do they come from? How do they form? How can you balance out disinfection and water age to keep disinfection by products from forming in your distribution system?
Aggressive water can cause corrosion issues which release heavy metals such as lead and copper into the drinking water in your consumer’s home. We will look at corrosion control treatment techniques being used to prevent this.
 This class is intended for Water Operators, Water Distribution System Personnel, Managers and Board Members.
