Monday, April 19 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time
Closed-circuit RO for Brine Management

Take a fresh look at the latest in closed-circuit RO for brine management technology solutions. Experts in these sessions will discuss results from pilot and demonstration testing CCRO for system performance optimization and much more. Case studies are included to provide examples of successful solutions in action.   

Session Titles & Presenters: 

  • Exceeding 90% Recovery with Conventional and Closed-Circuit RO: Results from Parallel Pilot Systems  Michael Adelman, Stantec
  • Year-Long Optimization of a Full-Scale Application of Closed-Circuit Reverse Osmosis on Brackish Groundwater for Municipal Use  Daniel ten Bosch, Black & Veatch
  • Brine Minimization Using Closed-Circuit Reverse Osmosis  Jason Yoshimura, CDM Smith

 

Friday, April 23 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time
Benefits of Membrane Pretreatment

This session includes studies of pretreatment for NF/RO and MF/UF membrane applications. Goals of these studies include process optimization and performance, increased membrane lifespan, reduced maintenance needs and chemical cost savings. 

Session Titles & Presenters: 

  • Low Dosage Scale Inhibitor Addition for RO and NF Applications  Carlyn Higgins, University of Central Florida
  • Targeting Zeta Potential Value versus Clarified Turbidity as Pretreatment to MF/UF Gregg McLeod, HDR Inc
  • Pretreatment Review for NF and LPRO Membranes: Literature Review and Case Studies Matthew Charles, Hazen and Sawyer

 

Wednesday, April 28 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time
Ultrafiltration Membrane Performance and Optimization

Ultrafiltration membrane systems are designed in a variety of configurations and operate in a range of process parameters. Optimizing these systems is a challenge that can pay dividends in lower energy costs and improved O&M.  Attendees will hear how others have successfully addressed system optimization.

Session Titles & Presenters:

  • Pilot Study and Design of Integrated Membrane Treatment Systems for Alaska Surface Water Mark Wilf, Tetra Tech
  • Long-Term Performance and Operating Cost Comparison of Side by Side Pressure and Submerged UF Plants Treating Surface Water Karla Kinser, Burns and McDonnell
  • Optimization of Submerged Ultrafiltration Membrane-Kennewick WTP as Case Study Nathan Kutil, HDR Inc

 

Friday, April 30 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time
Retrofit and Expansion: Strategies for Increased Plant Production

Retrofit with advanced treatment technology, rebuild, or expand with current technology? The choice is real for growing municipalities as rising water demands and increasingly stringent water regulations compel water managers to boost capacity and quality at their water treatment plants.

Session Titles & Presenters:

  • Direct Cassette Retrofit of 1 Train of NIPS UF Membranes at the Lake Gaston WTP in Chesapeake, VA Tom Poschmann, Scinor
  • Energy Savings and Production Gains by Retrofitting Existing BGD Facilities in the Lower Rio Grande Valley Jorge Arroyo, Freese and Nichols
  • Addressing the Needs of a Remote Community Using a Package Ultrafiltration System and Prefabricated Building Design Chelsea Jensen, WesTech Engineering, Inc.

Continuing Education Information

Some states will accept webinars and you may be awarded Continuing Education credits by your licensing agency. It is the individual's responsibility, before registering for any education program, to contact his/her licensing agency: 1. To confirm that the education program is acceptable for continuing education credit towards your particular license; and 2. To confirm what you need to submit for credit approval. You must contact your specific licensing agency for details.

We recommend that you:
  • Contact the agency 30 days prior to attending training
  • Ask your agency about its relevancy criteria
  • Ask your agency if the training format is approved (online vs. in-person)
  • Find out what credit the agency approves
  • Find out what you need to do in order to receive credit
  • Find out whether you must submit an application prior to attending or submit handouts, etc., after training
  • Learn More about continuing education
