    Surface water or ground water can serve as sources of drinking water and each has their own treatment requirements to be safe for human consump- tion. Protecting source water from contamination will reduce treatment costs, saving both time and money. Protecting source water also reduces risks to public health from exposure to contaminated water.
    Source water assessments provide water utilities, community governments, and others with information needed to protect drinking water sources. Learn- ing how to conduct a source water assessment and implement management measures can prevent, reduce or eliminate risks to your drinking water supply. This free workshop will discuss key concepts for protecting source water and is recommended for operators, water management, and any water system personnel or anyone with an interest in better understanding the value of operating a safe drinking water system.
    This workshop qualifies for 6 contact hours. Refreshments will be offered.
    Workshop agenda:
    • Delineation of source water protection area
    • Inventory of known and potential sources of contamination
    • Determine susceptibility of your PWS to contaminant sources
    • Education of the public about threats identified
    • Management measures for prevention, reduction or elimination of risks
    • Contingency planning for contamination events

    Nearly four percent of the nation’s electricity is consumed by water and wastewater facilities, and industry experts are predicting that energy costs are likely to increase 20 percent over the next 15 years. Approximately 30 to 60 percent of the average municipal budget is typically associated with water and wastewater treatment costs. Historically, water and wastewater facilities were designed for peak capacity, with little consideration for operational efficiency. With the fluctuating costs of energy this is at best, difficult to budget, and in bad times a very major expense for the water system. In this workshop we will work to minimize these effects. An energy audit performed by trained and certified personnel specializing in water and wastewater energy use can often uncover potential energy savings of 10 to 50 percent annually. But even a cursory examination done by in-house staff can often result in substantial energy savings.
