Training and Strategic Planning Meeting in US EPA Region 6

The TSC optimization team, in partnership with US EPA Region 6 and ASDWA, facilitated a meeting and technical training workshop on February 5 and 6, 2013. Participants included representatives from Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. Examples of state activities include how Arkansas has applied optimization concepts to identify data integrity issues and provide TCR compliance assistance to their systems. Additionally, Iowa has developed an optimization-style prioritization approach to identify small systems in need of compliance and technical assistance. The technical training workshop topic focused on manganese treatment, which provided information on monitoring and control strategies for surface water plants. This topic was identified because drought conditions over the summer of 2012 resulted in manganese treatment challenges throughout the region. (Matthew Alexander)
