Region 3 AWOP Training and Strategic Planning Meeting

The TSC optimization team, in partnership with EPA Region 3 and ASDWA, led a strategic planning meeting and technical training event from March 18-19, 2014 in Leesburg, VA.  Participants included state drinking water program representatives from Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.  The technical training workshop, held at the Leesburg water treatment plant, focused on turbidity data integrity.  The objective of the workshop was to assess the accuracy and consistency of the turbidity monitoring data over its entire life cycle (i.e., sampling through reporting).

Topics for the strategic planning portion of the meeting included incorporation of AWOP concepts into RTCR Level 1 and Level 2 assessments; data integrity evaluations conducted in the state of Washington; and a summary of groundwater optimization efforts conducted by other AWOP states. Meeting participants plan to incorporate these concepts into their respective state’s PWSS program activities. (Tom Waters & Rick Lieberman, US EPA TSC)
