Revisit AWWA’s webinar series “Contaminants of Concern”. Originally aired in May 2020, this series of webinar recordings offers you insight into regulatory concerns and updates for inorganic contaminants, corrosion control guidance, and how to manage risk from lead service lines. Sign up today and you will receive a link to view a recorded webinar on your own schedule.
Each Webinar recording is $75 for members, $120 for non-members. Upon registration, you will receive a link to view the recording.
Webinar #1: An Experiment in Environmental Leadership: Denver Water Variance Experience
Register for Webinar #1 and receive these Webinar Presentations:
Denver Water’s Pursuit of a Variance to the LCR Rather Than Accept Orthophosphate as OCCT
Nicole Poncelet-Johnson, Denver Water, Tyson Ingels, Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment
What we have Learned with Four Years of Pilot Studies on Harvested Lead Service Lines and Coupon Studies under Identical Conditions

Webinar #2: Manganese: Exploring Treatment Technologies
Manganese (Mn) is a frequent challenge for both surface and groundwater drinking water systems. Successful management of Mn often involves both treatment at the source and stabilization of accumulated (legacy) Mn in the distribution system. Although Mn is considered an aesthetic concern, there is increasing evidence that the presence of Mn in drinking water may be related to undesirable health effects in humans. For these reasons, water professionals need to be well versed in the treatment of raw water Mn and management of legacy Mn. This webinar will present the most current guidance regarding the both the treatment of Mn and management of legacy Mn. It will also cover an investigating of improvements to manganese treatment by biological processes and review a successful implementation of manganese treatment that also managed iron and disinfection byproduct levels.

Webinar #3: Regulatory Concerns and Updates for Inorganic Contaminants
In this webinar, recent and expected regulatory changes concerning inorganics will be covered. Results from a National Utility Survey on utility perspectives and experiences managing corrosion control in the distribution system will be presented. Additionally, an overview of findings related specifically to inorganic contaminants from UCMR4 will be presented in this installment of the webinar series.
