Innovative Aquifer Storage and Recovery Applications for Reuse and Drinking Water Projects

October 5, 2016, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MT 

With increased pressures on freshwater resources, more water suppliers are pursuing aquifer store and recovery (ASR) to address existing and anticipated water shortages. ASR can provide a cost-effective solution to increased water demands; water is stored in a suitable aquifer when the water is available and later recovered when it’s needed. Often combined with reuse to supplement drinking water supplies, ASR has many advantages over traditional surface reservoir water storage. ASR applications for reuse and drinking water will be highlighted in this webinar as well as AWWA’s new M63 manual on ASR. Fundamental principles of ASR, regulatory requirements, basic design and development criteria will be presented, along with case studies emphasizing solutions to common challenges associated with ASR.

GIS in Asset Management

October 13, 2016, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MT 

This webinar is sponsored by ESRI.

The International Infrastructure Management Manual defines asset management as “The combination of management, financial, economic, engineering and other practices applied to physical assets with the objective of providing the required level of service in the most cost-effective manner.” When an asset management plan is established, a first step to implement the plan is to create a system inventory and build an asset registry. To face management, financial, engineering, and other challenges, you must know what your physical assets are. To build an asset registry, ask what data will I collect? How will I store the data? What do I want to learn from the data? How do I access the data? Then, consider the uses of a Geographic Information System (GIS). A GIS, the definition of which is “a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data,” is a perfect fit for an asset registry because it allows you to visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships, patterns, and trends.

Organized Chaos - Use Problem Solving to Approach Treatment Facility Startup

October 19, 2016, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MT 

Startup and commissioning of a new or rehabbed treatment plant is a chaotic time for utility staff.  Many common problems occur because of hasty action, such as turning on the plant before it’s ready, starting up before key systems such as SCADA are checked out, making too many assumptions, not having a good plan in place, operations not taking ownership of the plant soon enough, not having operators involved during the startup, and more. This presentation will address common startup problems to help attendees avoid them. It will discuss developing solutions to implement during the treatment plant startup and commissioning phase. Utility experiences will be highlighted as well as lessons learned. Operators, engineers, project managers, and utility directors are staff who may benefit from this presentation.
