TAC Luncheon February 2019


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. Quincy Ave. Turn right at the entrance to the AWWA campus  (Pierce Street), and proceed to the south side of the building.

Boots on the Ground PWO – NTP Edition
05/15/19 - 05/15/19

Course name:  Boots on the Ground PWO – NTP Edition
Presenting facility-specific wastewater treatment technology from a real-life Operations perspective
RMWEA is sponsoring the launch of a new PWO event:  “Boots on the Ground”, where we explore the practical application, troubleshooting, and personal experience of wastewater treatment technology from the Operations perspective.  The event will encompass presentations made by the Operators and Inline Instrument Specialists who work with the equipment and processes on a daily basis.  We will discuss the process theory, history of operating the process and/or equipment, modifications needed for real-life application and/or changing conditions, and all the ingenious troubleshooting made by O&M and Inline staff.  We will follow up presentations and discussions with field visits of the actual process at the plant, to get a real ‘boots on the ground’ view.  Networking and question/answer sessions are also encouraged, to help us all learn as  a regional community.
The NTP Edition will be held at the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District’s new 4.2 avg MGD/28.8 rated MGD facility, the Northern Treatment Plant, to discuss the startup, operation, and troubleshooting of several key systems of the plant:  Secondary treatment (5-stage bardenpho with step-feed, and 100% SWAS), Tertiary treatment (flocculation/sedimentation using alum + course sand filtration), Post-Aerobic Digestion (mitigating sidestream nitrogen and phosphorus loading), and an overview of the inline instrumentation systems of the plant (which makes it all possible).
We are asking to limit attendance to municipal wastewater treatment plant field workers and supervisors.  The launch of this PWO series is an effort to connect field workers to share real-life operational experience of wastewater treatment.
