Wastewater 4 Highlights

The Wastewater 4 Short Course was developed in response to evaluations from participants and instructors in Wastewater Short Courses 1-3. The topics covered in Wastewater 4 are either not included in Wastewater 1-3 or are designed to supplement the material of the other three courses. Wastewater 4 information will prove very useful for people who are (or will be) in supervisory roles and/or are responsible for the management of plant operations; e.g., designing, implementing, and/or maintaining plans for energy conservation, emergency preparedness, safety, solids disposal, etc.
