Tennessee Closes the Gap in Operator Training
Continuing education for Water Treatment Operators, and keeping up with the latest available technologies is quite essential. Personnel from five Tennessee water plants took advantage of Chemtrac’s “Optimizing Coagulation Using Streaming Current Measurement” workshops during 2014. Operators from La Vergne, Madison, Centerville, Harpeth Valley, and Bon Aqua learned how the Laboratory Charge Analyzer saves valuable time and gives added coagulant dose determination precision as compared to routine jar tests.
Using a hands-on approach, operators also serviced the on-line Streaming Current Monitors and visually saw how they work in coordination with pH, turbidity, UV254, and TOC instrumentation. Changes in flow rates, pH, and chemical feed rates, helped the operators to understand the plant’s mechanical controls for optimizing water treatment. All classes were coordinated with the help of the Fleming Training Center, for offering continuing education credits.
