Drinking Water Optimization Training

During the week of March 7, 2016, the TSC Optimization Team led a training class for drinking water staff with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE). Topics addressed during the 2½ day class include surface water treatment optimization; assessing water system turbidity performance and data interpretation; and turbidity sampling, testing, and data development. A turbidity data integrity workshop was conducted at a nearby water treatment plant and provided participants the opportunity to identify challenges that may lead to inaccurate turbidity and disinfection data. Participants concluded their training by summarizing their findings and developing action steps to implement aspects of their training in their work.  This was the first class in a series of three that the KDHE will complete as they prepare to join the EPA Regions 6/7 Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP).
