Optimization Program – Microbial Performance Based Training (PBT)

The TSC optimization team, in collaboration with the West Virginia Bureau of Public Health, conducted the sixth and final session of microbial PBT on April 30, 2013 at the Summersville, WV National Guard Conference Center. WV Drinking water treatment plant operators reported on their efforts to improve filtered water quality using the techniques learned and applied throughout the training project. Participant feedback credited the training for the documented improvements in treated water quality and also for the increased levels of skill and confidence exhibited by the operators. Commitment was unanimous for a follow-up session to be held in 9 – 12 months. The purpose of this session is to evaluate the progress as operators continue to apply the skills and techniques to optimize process control at each of their treatment plants.
