This two-day workshop provides participants with a detailed understanding of how particular soils affect the treatment of sewage. Participants will learn to identify characteristics of soil and the components of an onsite wastewater treatment system site evaluation and professional soil profile description. Participants will also receive instruction at a field location to practice the principles of site evaluation and characterize soils in profile trenches.
This national training program presents a standardized method for evaluating the status of treatment, distribution and dispersal technologies used in advanced onsite wastewater treatment systems. It establishes a benchmark standard for operation, maintenance and monitoring activities. This program is delivered in two parts (part 1 is offered here).
Part 1: Introduction to O&M is a two-day course. This course includes: Industry overview • Business and ethics • Wastewater math • Safety • Wastewater characteristics • Details technologies such as tanks, pumps, demand dosing, gravity and low-pressure pipe distribution systems as well as at and above grade soil treatment applications.
Completion of the COWA/NAWT Inspector program is recommended.
This custom course is designed as a complement and advanced continuation of the Soil Science Training Course
Learning Objectives will be coming soon.
