Residuals Management: The “Other” Side to the Water Treatment Process

Course Description

A byproduct from the water treatment process is residuals. Residuals are generated in different unit processes within a treatment process and each treatment process can generate residuals differently at different rates and with different compositions. This short course will look at how solids are generated at water treatment plants and how these residuals are managed. Ultimately, how residuals are managed and properly disposed of can be quite different at different facilities. This course will look at some of the methods utilized at water treatment plants in the Commonwealth and why these methods are important to these facilities.

CPE Water Quality Broadcast March: Hydraulic Transients: Things That Go Bump in the Line

Course Description

Most commonly known as water hammer, hydraulic transients is best defined as rapid pressure fluctuations in a water distribution system. This is a very common occurrence and is frequently ignored. Small variations in pressure are generally harmless. However, large or prolonged pressure fluctuations can be a major problem if not properly addressed. Transients can occur simply due to a manufacturing process drawing from your water system or could be caused by the loss of power at a pumping facility. Regardless of the cause, transient flow pressures can cause major problems and severe damage to multiple system components if the proper precautions are not taken.

This presentation will define transients and its causes. We will discuss and show videos of real life cases where transients caused problems in water and wastewater systems, and ways to mitigate such conditions in your system. Discussion will also include modeling these events and what needs to be taken into consideration. Finally, we will discuss various case studies showing how some municipalities were able to pinpoint the cause and their solution to mitigating hydraulic transients in their water systems.

About the Instructor

Larado M. Robinson graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech in 1986. He obtained his professional engineering license in 1990. His early experience includes land development design, roadway design, and storm water and flood plain management. In 1991, he transitioned into performing water and wastewater work as a consulting engineer specializing in water distribution and wastewater collection modeling and analysis, design and construction and administration management. His experience over the last 23 years has been helping counties, cities, towns and authorities improve their water and wastewater systems. Now, as Director of the Water Department with the City of Salem, his desire is to improve the City’s water and wastewater systems.
