AWWA Webcast: Implications of the EPA’s Review of Existing Legislation

Date: Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Time: 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Location: GB217

********************

On March 29, 2010, the US Environmental Protection Agency published the results of its second six-year review of 71 existing drinking water regulations.  In this notice, USEPA detailed the process it used to review health effects, analytical methods, occurrence, and treatment data for these 71 regulations.  USEPA has determined that four contaminants (acrylamide, epichlorohydrin, trichloroethylene [TCE], and tetrachloroethylene [PCE]) are candidates for regulatory revision.

This webcast summarizes the details of the process used for this review, why these four specific contaminants were selected for potential regulatory revisions, and potential implications for utilities if these standards are lowered in the future.

AWWA Webcast: Implementing Low-Pressure Membrane Plants – The Utility Perspective

Date: Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Time: 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Location: i2C Room (2nd Floor, Galbraith Building)

********************

This webcast reviews the critical keys to membrane plant design, pre-procurement, and construction.  A utility view of the issues and approaches to low-pressure membrane plant design and construction offers specific suggestions for accomplishing these processes.  Completed membrane plant construction projects provide the information used to help others avoid unnecessary complications.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize specific aspects of membrane treatment plant design
  • Distinguish important construction considerations of utilities
  • Illustrate lessons learned from operating membrane treatment plants
