Distribution System Performance Based Training in Alabama

002On February 26, 2013, the Optimization Team, in partnership with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM), conducted Session 7 of a Performance Based Training (PBT) project focused on distribution system optimization. Operators from six water systems (the parent system and five consecutive systems) are participating in this project. All of the operators continue to develop their optimization skills, as was evident during their reports on their efforts to identify and improve areas of poor water quality in their systems. During Session 7 the participants were introduced to storage tank assessment techniques and potential strategies that can be implemented to address water quality problems due to tanks.
