    Force mains are critical to any wastewater conveyance system, but it can sometimes be difficult to assess their conditions due to the nature of underground and pressurized utilities. In this webinar, we will walk through the condition assessment process for a critical force main on the coast of California, from the initial site walk to the finish report. Two types of non-destructive technologies (NDT) will also be featured in this talk: a detached free-flowing acoustic sensor, and an electro-magnetic scanning device.

    Attendees will learn about a utilities first-hand experience of deploying these two types of device, interpreting their results, and lessons learned from this effort.

    Contact Hours:  1.8 contact hours towards all CWEA certifications

    This month's free webinar on COVID and the wastewater sector focuses on two fast-moving topics: wastewater surveillance and back to work protocols including vaccinations.  

    We'll hear from biotech company Biobot Analytics about their experience in fulfilling Phase 2 of the Health and Human Services nationwide surveillance intended to test wastewater from roughly 30% of the US population. They will discuss how vaccination rates or the Delta variant affect interpretation of wastewater based epidemiology (WBE) data, review findings from Phase 2 using results from Boston to illustrate results, and a review of California data through the national lens.
     
    California utility leaders will discuss their agency's approach to evolving health and safety rules, vaccinations and return to the office plans. As large employers and the Federal government move towards vaccine requirements, our panel of experts will discuss how California municipalities can approach vaccine requirements.
     
    We've invited the CDC to speak on evolving recommendations to manage the pandemic including vaccinations, booster shots, and vaccines for those under 12 years of age.
     
    Speakers include:
    • Eileen White, EBMUD 
    • Tom Rosales, City of San Diego
    • Scott Olesen, Biobot
    • CDC speakers
     
    Join these important discussions about California's wastewater sector as we work together to bring this pandemic to an end.
