This course explores the techniques and equipment used by wastewater collection system operators to identify and control the inflow and infiltration.
The course explores the sources of infiltration and inflow through such means as: flow testing, dye testing, smoke testing, as close circuit television and other techniques to help discover inflow and infiltration problems. The latter portion of the course introduces methods of repairing and controlling inflow and infiltration.
What will be covered:
This workshop will be presented via a Zoom Webinar. Registrants should confirm prior to the day of the event that their computer supports Zoom software.
Course Description: Understanding the function of the equipment and process is vital to the proper operation and maintenance of a water treatment plant. This workshop will review the basic principles of membrane filtration and the parameters that affect its operation. The workshop will review the fundamentals and practical aspects of membranes. Topics included: raw water quality and its impact on pre-treatment and on membrane selection; pre-treatment; membrane operation; water quality analysis; system operation including backwash/flushing and clean-in-place procedures; system maintenance; instrumentation/controls; record keeping and review of SDS sheets.
This workshop will be presented by Northern Lakes College online, using Moodle and Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.
This course has been developed with support and contributions with one of Canada’s leading municipal drinking water laboratories (Hamilton Public Works) to provide operators with a better understanding of proper protocols, procedures and techniques for conducting tests and analysis’ as allowed for operators within the restrictions stipulated under current regulations.
Participants will be provided with information to address the “What can be done and how’s” to ensure maximum compliance and test validities. Instruction will also be provided on the proper use of the typical analysis equipment and techniques.
Course Description: The workshop looks at water quality requirements for water entering storage reservoirs and distribution systems, as well as the requirements at the most distant sections of the distribution system. The effects of the system on water quality degradation and customer response are discussed. Descriptions and maintenance of major system components are presented. These components include pumps, motors, controls, storage reservoirs and water mains. The options regarding pipeline preventative maintenance are also presented.
This half-day course provides information about the characteristics and health effects of hydrogen sulphide.
