Region 3 AWOP Strategic Planning Meeting

The US EPA, TSC optimization team, in partnership with Region 3 and ASDWA, held a strategic planning meeting and technical workshop on April 7-9, 2015 in Maryland. State drinking water program representatives from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia reported on their respective AWOP implementation efforts and presented positive water quality impacts. Four DWPD staff members also joined the AWOP participants in a distribution system optimization workshop conducted at the Bowie, MD water system. The title of the workshop was “Assessing Distribution System Water Quality and Potential Follow-Up Studies and Control Strategies.” State participants provided positive feedback on the outlined approach and especially on the use of free chlorine residual as a key indicator of water quality.
