Region 3 Area-Wide Optimization Program

The TSC optimization team, in partnership with EPA Region 3 and ASDWA, held a one-day planning meeting on October 27, 2015, in Harrisburg, PA.  State drinking water program representatives from Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia reported on their respective AWOP implementation efforts, including technical assistance efforts to control disinfection byproducts, maintain disinfectant residual, and investigate turbidity data integrity issues within their water systems. Meeting discussion topics included next steps related to data integrity (evaluations and follow-up), application of AWOP to address harmful algal blooms, and disinfection data integrity training (planned for the next Region 3 AWOP meeting in the spring of 2016).
