Course Summaries

Fats, Oil, and Grease Oh My -  2.5 TCH Credits
Thursday, December 10, 2015 (9:00 - 11:30am)
Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) is a regulated pollutant which requires treatment prior to discharge to the sewer system. Unless handled properly, FOG can adversely affect wastewater treatment operations and collection systems. This course is designed to give operators a better understanding of what goes on when treating wastewater with elevated levels of FOG and pollutant removal. A brief overview of materials contributing to FOG, parameters affecting FOG removal, and common treatment technologies will be discussed.  

Dissolved Air Flotation - 2.5 TCH Credits
Thursday, December 10, 2015  (12:30 - 3:00pm)
Dissolved air flotation (DAF) is a technique employed at many wastewater treatment facilities to remove suspended solids and fats, oils and greases from the wastewater. This course will discuss the basic principles behind DAF to provide the operators with an understanding of technology and why it works. The training will also include a case study containing information and pictures from a DAF system installed at an industrial laundry service company.

Water Systems and Conservation - 2.5 TCH Credits
Thursday, December 17, 2015  (9:00 - 11:30am)
Wastewater treatment operators are faced with a number of challenges in the successful operation of their wastewater treatment system. The ability to understand how wastewater can affect other water systems shows wastewater treatment operators how important their role is in wastewater treatment facilities. This training will provide an understanding of how essential it is to operate a successful water treatment system, how wastewater can impact drinking water systems, and the importance of water conservation.

Emerging Technologies in Wastewater Treatment- 2.5 TCH Credits
Thursday, December 17, 2015  (12:30 - 3:00pm)
Advancements in technology are not just limited to your smart phone or tablet. New and more effective methods of treatment and system control are being developed for industrial wastewater treatment systems nearly every day. This training will highlight general (as well as specific) developments in treatment technologies and how they are helping to improve water quality from industrial sources. The course will also cover methods to review the viability of certain claims made about technological advancements.
