Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System Design, Management, and Use: Free Webinars

A series of six one-hour webinars on individual and clustered (decentralized) wastewater system design, management, and use in protecting surface and ground waters is planned for November and early December. The training sessions are open to consultants, design engineers, service professionals, and regulators at no cost through a university-based watershed management webinar program.

The US Environmental Protection Agency, the Conservation Technology Information Center, and Purdue University are co-sponsoring the training to improve the level of understanding and knowledge on how conventional and high-performance treatment systems work, how they’re designed and managed, and how to incorporate them into a wastewater management program.

Webcasts will be held at 12 noon EST beginning on Tuesday, November 9th, and continue every Tuesday at noon until December 14th.  Registration information and the full schedule is posted at http://ctic.org/resourcedisplay/384/    For more information, contact Angie Williams at williams(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)ctic.org .
