Webinars: 6/22-7/27: WWTP Nutrient Discharge Reductions

A new webinar training series, Reducing Nutrient Discharges Through Low-Cost Operational Changes, will teach you how to improve your activated sludge system’s biological nutrient removal (BNR) performance without costly capital upgrades. Minnesota wastewater operators can earn 1.75 contact hours per session, approved by MPCA, by attending the six free webinar sessions. Up to 10.5 contact hours can be earned by attending all six sessions. Attendees are encouraged to attend all sessions.

The training sessions will be led by one of the nation’s premier subject experts – Grant Weaver of CleanWaterOps  – who has helped facilities across the country reduce their nitrogen and phosphorus discharges using their existing facilities and equipment.

Each session will be held from 10:00 – 11:45 AM Central on the following dates:

  • Session 1 - Tuesday June 22: Optimizing Nitrogen Removal in Activated Sludge WWTPs – Introduction/Overview
  • Session 2 - Tuesday June 29: Optimizing Phosphorus Removal in Activated Sludge WWTPs – Introduction/Overview
  • Session 3 - Wednesday July 7: Optimizing Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal in Activated Sludge WWTPs – Review
  • Session 4 - Tuesday July 13: Optimizing Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal in Activated Sludge WWTPs – Case Studies, Part 1
  • Session 5 - Tuesday July 20: Optimizing Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal in Activated Sludge WWTPs – Case Studies, Part 2
