Distribution System Comprehensive Performance Evaluation

During the week of June 23rd, members of the Optimization Team, in partnership with the EPA Region 4 Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP) members, demonstrated the Distribution System Comprehensive Performance Evaluation (DS CPE) to the Region 4 AWOP in Mt. Airy, NC. This was the second in a series of three planned training CPEs intended to transfer DS CPE skills to the State AWOP participants; ultimately enabling them to conduct DS CPEs with and/or provide technical assistance to water systems challenged with meeting the Stage 2 DBPR or with maintaining a disinfectant residual in their system. Nineteen trainees participated in the CPE, which included representatives from Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and EPA Region 4.
