Region 10 AWOP Training and Strategic Planning Meeting

The TSC optimization team, in partnership with US EPA Region 10 and ASDWA, facilitated a strategic implementation meeting and technical workshop from May 20-22, 2014. Participants included representatives of drinking water programs from Alaska, Oregon, Utah and Washington. The EPA Region 10 office hosted the meeting in Seattle, where the participants reported on individual state AWOP implementation efforts. This was followed by a discussion of technical and implementation topics which resulted in action items to move the program forward. The workshop was conducted at the Deer Creek water treatment plant in cooperation with the Olympic View (WA) Water & Sewer District. The workshop objectives included identification and development of optimization strategies for contact adsorption clarifiers using buoyant media.

During the strategic implementation portion of the meeting, Bill Mundy (Regional Municipality of Halton, Ontario Canada) provided a presentation through Adobe Connect on the effective use of particle counters for indirect integrity monitoring of a membrane filtration plant. This information is directly applicable to the development of membrane optimization procedures by the Region 10 AWOP participants. (Rick Lieberman, US EPA, TSC).
