Region 10 AWOP Training and Strategic Planning Meeting

The TSC optimization team, in partnership with US EPA Region 10 and ASDWA, facilitated a meeting and technical training event via web conferencing on June 18-19, 2013.  Participants included representatives from Alaska, Oregon, Utah and Washington.  The technical training included additional data analyses from a workshop conducted previously on membrane treatment optimization in cooperation with the City of Warrenton, OR. 

The Washington Department of Health reported on its efforts to implement turbidity data-integrity activities on an area-wide basis through its regional office staff.  These efforts engage water system operators in assessing the accuracy and consistency of the turbidity data being maintained at their facilities over the entire life cycle of the data (i.e., sample collection through reporting).  Operators have been very appreciative of these state activities, often making immediate adjustments to improve the integrity of the data being generated.  The state plans to prepare a report of its findings in an upcoming department newsletter.
