10 Best Kept Secrets to a Better Water/Wastewater Operations

Description

This program explores ten unique little known "tools" one can use now to achieve a better process operations in treatment, distribution, or collection. Through superb computer slides and graphics, along with an interactive verbal presentation, learn why Temperature measurements may be your most measurement, why simple hypochlorite strength measurements are important, why portable ORP & Alkalinity testing can yield big wastewater monitoring dividends, how refining process tests for disinfection residuals, solids core-taking, and jar-testing can avoid violations. Learn why potable water corrosion management isn’t just water chemistry. Explore simplified nutrient monitoring methods for process control. See what two key inexpensive tools are missing from most treatment plant tool-box

Learning Objectives

  • Hypochlorite users will be the first to go back to their operations and begin monitoring Bleach strength after reviewing the information and simplified testing protocol presented here.
  • Refine, simplify and enhance water/wastewater process monitoring by using uncomplicated testing protocol like ORP, Alkalinity, residuals testing, nutrient monitoring, and others.
  • Know what two key tools to add to their maintenance tool box to enhance their maintenance programs.
  • Know that corrosion in potable waters is much more than water chemistry like pH and alkalinity. One must take a much broader view.

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.

21st Century Principles of Water/Wastewater Liquid Chlorination and De-Chlorination

Description

This program looks at the most common mistakes water/wastewater systems make using Hypochlorite and liquid based De-chlorinating agents. But it does much more….let’s compare and contrast on-site generation, high strength versus low strength hypochlorite. We’ll look at various Sulfite de-chlorination, Vitamin C, Hydrogen Peroxide, and other de-chlorinating methodologies. Learn why it’s so important to measure delivered Hypochlorite/De-chlorinating agent strength and rates of deterioration. Become expert at measuring hypo and dechlorination agents via hydrometers, refractometers, and simple chemical tests. Learn how valuable simple pump dose calculations can be too minimize and maximize residuals. And why it’s so important to verify all pump settings via routine calibrations.

Learning Objectives

  • How to minimize & maximize disinfection & dedisinfection residuals.
  • How to measure concentrations of all liquid chemicals, verify delivery strength & rate of deterioration.
  • Remind operators that all Chemical additions have potential to leave two things behind: Residuals & Byproducts.
  • How to Calculate proper Hypochorite/De-Chlorinating pump dose settings.
  • Basics of verifying chemical pump outputs routinely.
