Location: Meeting Room 313, Sacramento Convention Center

SWRCB Wastewater: 0.1 CEU

CWEA: .5 Contact Hours

Practice Area: Professional Challenge Area: Plant Operations – Challenges and Opportunities

Discover how the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts are utilizing off-gas testing to optimize their secondary aeration performance. This technique allows for real-time, in-situ measurements of oxygen transfer efficiency (OTE), which is useful for: checking the condition of the diffusers, establishing cleaning intervals, determining cleaning effectiveness, and monitoring fouling rates.

Learner Outcomes:

Level: Intermediate; working knowledge of subject matter / journeyman level staff
