Webinar | Operator Certification: Wastewater Disinfection
Join EFCN for this webinar series designed to help small wastewater system operators pass their certification exams. The series started with a 1-hour overview of study tips and test preparation techniques, and each subsequent 1-hour webinar focuses on a single topic typically found in Level 1 and Level 2 exams. Each session will include sample questions and a short Q and A period. This series can benefit new operators aiming for Level 1 and 2 certifications, as well as currently certified operators looking to pass higher-level tests.
Session 20: Wastewater contains different types of microscopic pathogens and must be disinfected before being released back into the environment so it is not harmful to plant and animal life, as well as humans downstream who may consume the water.
This training will cover:
- Pathogens commonly found in wastewater
- Chemicals used for disinfection
- Different forms of chlorine and chlorination systems
- Physical disinfection through UV light
- Factors that affect disinfection
- How to safely handle and store disinfection and dechlorination chemicals
