Process Control Technology Course *DEVELOPMENT* ~ *ASSESSMENT* *TROUBLE-SHOOTING*

Who Should Attend?  Intermediate to Experience Plant Operators, Treatment Plant Supervisors/Managers, Engineers. Certification Levels: “C” thru “A”; Regulatory Inspectors.

In-depth discussion on how to utilize various wastewater treatment process control tools and techniques.
Process Upsets? How to recognize and interpret; what corrective action(s); also, when, why & what to monitoring to help prevent reoccurrences. 
  • Learn the most common process control mistakes some operators make when adjusting their treatment process
  • Chlorination is NOT the solution to all Foaming Issues; Learn how to identify types of foam; then solutions
  • Clarifier Sludge Bulking vs. Sludge Rising; the final visual appearance on clarifiers are almost the same. How to recognize; more so, what to do
  • Detailed overview of the treatment process’s Eco-System – View Microbial activity in their natural habitat (Note: Live classes each attendee uses microscopes. (Contact TWUA to schedule this course live!)
  • Low “DO” and/or low “pH” issues; learn the root cause and how to correct. Example, adjusting for low “pH” issue; most operators add a “basic” chemical to raise the effluent’s pH. This is addressing the symptom; not the root cause.
  • If your current Process Control Program (PCP) only consists of monitoring “MLSS” along with your Influent; for the same Effluent’s TPDES Parameters; i.e. (CBOD5, TSS, NH3-N, etc.) You absolutely need this course. There are other inexpensive tests that are essential to an effective process control program and crucial when trouble-shooting upsets
