TAC Presentation
 

 Unlocking the Mysteries of Granular Sludge & Results from the Metro District's Hydrocyclone Case Study

The first part of the presentation will be an overview of granular sludge presented by Art Umble, PhD. He will summarize what granular sludge is, available technologies, and highlight the potential benefits for the wastewater industry. The second half of the discussion, Isaac Avila with Metro Wastewater Reclamation District (Metro District), will present results from testing performed on a full-scale secondary treatment train located at the Robert W. Hite Treatment Facility. Results from this effort suggest that through a combination of process changes and selective wasting using inDENSE hydrocyclones, aerobic densified solids can be formed and retained in plug-flow systems. The impact of these results on capacity will be discussed.

The Rocky Mountain Water and Wastewater Fundamentals School is a basic, comprehensive overview for water and wastewater operators. The course is divided into two separate classes, one on water and one on wastewater. The course is designed for people who are new to the field or have been in it for only a few years. It should be beneficial to those seeking Class "C", "D", "T", and "S" certification.

The goal of the Fundamentals school is to provide education for operators, so they possess a better understanding of the water and wastewater fields. The courses are designed to furnish operators with basic concepts of how treatment processes work and the requirements of government regulations. The Fundamentals school curriculum also provides opportunities to prepare for either the water or wastewater certification exams. However, operators should not use the courses as their only study guide for certification exams. 

** By taking this course, you will meet the APPROVED REGULATORY REQUIREMENT for Colorado **

"A" and "B" operators are encouraged to participate in the Intermediate and Advanced School in April, which offers courses geared for experienced treatment plant operators.
