Events in the month of February 2019

Join us
 on February 5 from 1-2 p.m. from the comfort of your desk to learn more about water reuse in Colorado. Recycling water means maximizing the state's resources and generating "new" water supply options for growing and water-stressed communities. Is water reuse becoming more popular across the West? 
We'll explore why more communities are turning toward reuse and what regulations, policies, or other next steps may be needed for water recycling to grow. Hear from water providers and WateReuse Colorado members who have taken different approaches and actions toward expanding water reuse. 

With speakers:
Laura Belanger, Western Resource Advocates
Damian Higham, Denver Water
Mark Marklowe, Castle Rock Water

Hot off the Press: Recent Advancements in Water Treatment 
Thursday, February 21st,

This month’s presentation will be a “tag-team” by Charlie Liu, Carolyn Coffey and Kate Newhart. Charlie, Carolyn, and Kate are all PhD students at the Colorado School of Mines in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department, each representing a major water/wastewater treatment research lab on campus.  
Charlie Liu will be discussing per and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) treatment in groundwater including a brief overview on PFASs, treatment technologies currently used and researched, and results from pilot scale case studies with granular activated carbon (GAC) and nanofiltration (NF) membranes in contaminated and spiked waters. Carolyn Coffey will present her work on energy-positive, anaerobic treatment of municipal wastewater including how anaerobic organic removal with simultaneous partial-nitritation anammox (PN/A) can be achieved in a pilot-scale primary/secondary anaerobic reactor for energy generation. Kate Newhart will discuss the use of big data in municipal wastewater including a case study of statistical process control to detect treatment faults in a sequencing batch membrane bioreactor. 
The luncheon will be held at AWWA at 6666 W. Quincy Ave, Denver. From Hwy 285 (W. Hampden Ave)  exit Sheridan Blvd. Turn right onto W.
