We intend to look at: Arsenic as
a co-precipitated contaminant and how it can be easily managed. Pressure filters and/or packaged plants when
the proper amount of iron is present. If not enough iron is present, what can
be done using Ferric based coagulants, possibly radionuclide reduction.We will cover improvements in
the filtration processes with media retaining baffles in a combined air water
backwash application. This works with pressure filters and gravity
filters in conventional plants. This would extend to what the region has
seen with other underdrains, as we review Multiblock with Laser shield and low
profile media retaining troughs. The Balance of our presentation time would
address rehabs, upgrades and expansions with a focus on compliance with the new
LT2 regulations. Time permitting, we will offer an introduction on
We would appreciate participants submitting questions in
advance of the meetings to help make the meetings more interactive and
informative for participants (i.e. we want to know what is important to
you). Suggestions for question topics: what are current operational issues a plant is having, rehabilitation
vs. replacement or expansion, Ground water, Surface water and Ground Water
Under the Influence, EPA regulations.
