Surface Water Treatment Series

Drinking water plants that use surface water or ground water under the direct influence of surface water as a source are subject to a complex set of regulations under the Safe Drinking Water Act. These drinking water systems protect public health by providing quality drinking water to millions of Michigan residents.

The goal of this webinar series is to provide free, relevant, and timely training. If you are a Michigan F certified operator, associated personnel, or interested in surface water treatment, this series is for you!

Water Treatment Plant: Common Sanitary Survey Findings
This webinar will give an overview of how the sanitary survey process is carried out for community water supplies in the State of Michigan.

Stay tuned for part two in June that will focus on the distribution system!

This webinar is approved for 0.1 CEC in the Technical category for drinking water operators.
