This course is designed specifically for persons who have a general understanding of wastewater treatment, but are looking for a comprehensive advanced overview of various types of wastewater treatment systems. It is recommended for officials such as MOECC Wastewater Inspectors, Ministry of Health Inspectors or Municipal Officials who have regulatory obligations but require an advanced understanding of the various treatment processes they may encounter.
This course will help participants develop a greater un
Collection systems are critical municipal networks that direct the effluent of industry, the fats/greases/and oils of restaurants, the flushing and draining of homes, and in some locations, the rains of enormous storms to our wastewater plants for treatment and eventual safe release to the environment..
The challenges and complexities of a wastewater collection system are immense. Occasionally, objects are found wedged in a forcemain.
Lagoon operations can be a complex world of biology, chemistry, and hydrology under its calm surface. This course dives into the design, operation, maintenance and regulatory requirements around effective lagoon operations. It’s also a large body of water, so we’ll be looking at the safety hazards associated with them, and some of the problem solving skills you’ll need to understand and operate effectively and efficiently
Beginning with the basics of digester operation and maintenance, this course then concentrates on the requirements of the Digester Gas Code and TSSA inspection criteria. The safety measures and equipment required for safe digester operation are discussed, and an inspection of the various components is carried out. Idea for operators perparing for the inspection process, and p a greater understanding of the safeguards that must be present on any anaerobic digester system
This course will assist wastewater treatment personnel in understanding various aspects of biosolid treatment methods. Sludge (Biosolids), is one of the largest operating costs in a utility. Dealing with it cost-effectively and efficiently is a key component of biosolids treatment. A primary concern when dealing with biosolids (sludge) is the task of dewatering the sludge so that it can be safely reused or disposed of in the future.
This course is designed to introduce you to one of the most important—and unseen--contributors to the reduction of wastewater organics, the wastewater microorganisms. Biological wastewater treatment can be as simple as natural ecosystems such as marshlands, or as complex as engineered systems of microorganism cultivation and harvesting.
