This seminar addresses issues regarding the technology and operation of wastewater systems in view of enhancing their efficiency. In addition, this seminar addresses stand alone biological systems, lagoons and large subsurface systems.


 
Course Outline
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
  • recognize the complexity of wastewater treatment
  • gain knowledgeable to question the rationale of the engineering proposals
  • appreciate as the owner of a system the need to operate the systems in an optimized manner and learn about troubleshooting
  • develop skills necessary for trouble-free operation of small and medium sized communities' wastewater treatment systems
Description

The continued efficient operation of wastewater systems in small and medium sized communities without detrimental environmental impact is a growing concern for wastewater system owners. With limited funds available to the owners as well as regulatory agencies, the task of sewage treatment and disposal is becoming increasingly difficult.

This seminar addresses issues regarding the technology and operation of wastewater systems in view of enhancing their efficiency. In addition to conventional systems, this seminar addresses stand alone biological systems, lagoons and large subsurface systems. The course will touch on sludge treatment and disposal.

Objective

The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
