Water Operator Training
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.

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.

Drinking Water Treatment requires filtration using different types of media to remove different types of contaminants that cause health effects or pose aesthetic problems. The surface water treatment rule requires that surface water be filtered and disinfected to ensure that it is safe for consumers. There are many types of surface water filtration and disinfection processes used to produce safe aethetically pleasing water for consumers. This seminar will focus on different types of filtration processes and different types of disinfection used in the water industry. Iron and Manganese, Hardness, Radionuclides and surface water filtration processes will be discussed. Chlorine Disinfection -Ultra Violet Light and Ozone disinfection will also be discussed. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the different types of filtration and disinfection processes that are available to water systems.
