Management of Onsite & Clustered Wastewater Treatment Systems
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides a basic overview of the elements essential for the development of a sound management program for decentralized wastewater systems that is specifically suited to your community.
One in every four households in the United States relies on an individual onsite or small cluster system to treat wastewater. In far too many cases, these systems are installed and largely forgotten – until problems arise. An effective wastewater management program, if properly executed, can protect public health, preserve valuable water resources, and maintain economic vitality in a community.
To facilitate proper management, EPA published Voluntary National Guidelines for Managing Onsite and Clustered (Decentralized) Wastewater Treatment Systems.
This presentation assists with implementing the guidelines and is intended as a guide for communities that have evaluated a full range of wastewater options and determined that decentralized wastewater treatment is the most cost-effective and appropriate long-term option. It also provides links to extensive resources for more thorough investigation of particular topics or management program elements.
This 2 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to civil, environmental, and chemical engineers, sanitarians, and others seeking an understanding of the management of onsite and clustered wastewater treatment systems.
This continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the management of onsite and clustered wastewater treatment systems
- Learning about and applying management guidelines to other water programs
- Describing management models
- Learning how to apply the management models
