Chlorine Residual Testing and Lab Skills Workshop

Tuesday March 3rd, 2020

Bellingham Technical College - G Building Room 102, Bellingham, WA

TWO (2) IDENTICAL SESSIONS

MORNING OR AFTERNOON

Morning Workshop starts at 8:30 AM PDT

Afternoon Workshop starts at 1:00 PM PDT

(doors open at 8:00 for morning registration and coffee and 12:30 for afternoon registration and sodas.

Both Water & Wastewater CEUs available!!

Attend these 3.5 hour workshops for chlorine residual testing.  Each class will provide drinking water operators with a better understanding of good lab skills and chlorine measurement techniques and why they matter.

It will provide operators with hands on skills to answer the questions:

  • How do I know my instrument is working?
  • How do I know that the residual that I measure is real?
  • How good is my technique?

Class size is limited to 20 students.  The goal of the workshop is to increase water data accuracy and consistency. 

This is a hands on class with five separate activites - attendees must bring a  chlorine test kit, and all supplies needed to measure chlorine residual, including extra batteries for your instrument.  Bring your standards if you have them for comparison.  Also remember a calculator (a smart phone calculator is fine).

This training is being taught by Office of Drinking Water staff to provide increased training as recommended by the Disinfection Data Integrity Project (2015).  The Yearlong study investigated disinfection measurement, recording, and reporting practices in 33 water treatment plants located in the northwest region of Washington State.  Deficiencies were identified in all 33 treatment facillities that affect the accuracy of the calculated pathogen inactivation achieved by the disinfection processes.  Pathogen inactivation level errors of over 100% were identified when more accurate data was used.

This study highlighted challenges involved with ensuring accurate water quality measurements.
