Lessons Learned from Surface Water and Reuse Utilities: Maximizing Contaminant Removal with Biofiltration - Webinar

December 2, 2021 1:00pm to 2:30pm

This webinar is included in our full year subscription package.

Biofiltration treatment is extremely relevant to drinking water and reuse utilities across the United States. Significant work has been done over the last 10 years to characterize and optimize biofiltration systems. This webinar will provide new information and data for managing emerging contaminants and yielding effective treatment.

Sometimes, biofiltration systems must face operational tradeoffs to meet contaminant removal goals. This means that biofilters might need to be backwashed more frequently, monitored for specific parameters, or optimized using strategies like nutrient augmentation to encourage biological treatment that meets water quality goals. The objective of this webinar is to provide updates related to these tradeoffs and opportunities that have grown our body of knowledge.

Learning Objectives:

1. Apply optimization strategies from the webinar to their utility's biofilter operation.
2. Gain an understanding of emerging contaminants (both organic and inorganic) that utilities are monitoring and treating.
3. Evaluate the current state of knowledge and learn about new tools and guidance documents in production.
