  • The State of Water Challenges on the US-Mexico Border (Live Webinar)

    Contains 3 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 07/29/2021 at 12:00 PM (PDT)

    Hear about the current challenges, lessons learned and the solutions ahead from a San Diego-based expert.

    image

    As demands on freshwater escalate, there are mounting pressures on natural systems and increasing needs to find sustainable solutions to address global water and sanitation challenges at the US-Mexico Border. The Water Innovation and Reuse Lab (WIRLab) at San Diego State University trains and mentors undergraduate and graduate students from diverse groups to take on environmental challenges in water scarce environments by conducting research on sustainable water and sanitation technologies and biogeochemical processes in natural and engineered systems. 

    Current projects investigate the transformation and persistence of emerging chemicals in anaerobic and aerobic decentralized water reuse systems, sources of anthropogenic contaminants in urban rivers, water quality response to stream restoration, the fate of microplastics in the environment, and rapid fluorescence-based tracking of organic contaminants in source waters, streams, and groundwater.

    WIRLab is led by Dr. Natalie Mladenov, Associate Professor and William E. Leonhard Jr. Chair in the Department of Civil, Construction, & Environmental Engineering at SDSU. Hear from this San Diego-based expert on research related to decentralized water reuse for urban greening and the Tijuana River sewage monitoring study.

    Dr. Natalie Mladenov is an associate professor of environmental engineering at San Diego State University. She teaches courses on engineering design for environmental problems, sustainable water and sanitation systems, and biological, physical, and chemical process for water pollution control and water reuse. Her research seeks to understand processes that affect the mobilization of pollutants in the environment and the fate of chemicals of emerging concern in wastewater treatment and water reuse systems. Through collaborative efforts, her team has evaluated the drivers of anthropogenic contamination in the San Diego River, tested water quality sensors for tracking of sewage contamination and source water control, and studied controls on the mobilization of arsenic in deltaic groundwater. Dr. Mladenov is also passionate about promoting internationalization in engineering, exposing undergraduate students to careers in academia, and promoting decentralized wastewater treatment systems for water reuse.

  • Virtual Tools for Real-World Decision Making - On Demand

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 07/13/2021

    Demonstrate how SFPUC successfully engaged Operations and Maintenance (O&M) staff throughout the Biosolids Digester Facilities Project (BDFP) design to obtain consensus on design direction, to incorporate operational features/flexibilities, and for future use as a training tool to help O&M staff learn/understand the new treatment processes provided.

    Member fee: $38.00
    Non-Member fee: $53.00

    1.8 CWEA contact hours towards MT and EIT certifications. 
    (For hours to be approved for the Wastewater Operator certification, the certification holder will have to submit documentation to the State. From there, the State will decide on approval.)

    Using a Digital Twin To Elicit Invaluable O&M Design Input and Support Training

    Designing new solids treatment facilities with new treatment processes is a challenge for any utility.  A successful design is one that provides operational features that enable agency staff to efficiently operate the facilities long-term.  This webinar will provide strategies and tools available to utilities to engage their O&M staff during the design process to accomplish the following:  refine design criteria to ‘right-size’ unit processes to O&M staff capabilities, resources, and project budget; document the designer’s intended operations strategy and gain buy-in from O&M staff;  demonstrate to O&M staff that the facilities can be operated as designed given the increasing complexities of the wastewater processes and the heavy reliance on automated controls; demonstrate process performance during simulated maintenance and unplanned events; and, create a training tool for O&M staff that can be used in advance of construction commissioning. 

    During this webinar, SFPUC engineers will provide overview of the BDFP project and explain why and how O&M staff were integrated into the design process. The Jacobs design team will then provide in-depth case studies from the BDFP:  development of (1) an Operations Technical Memorandum, and (2) a Digital Twin Computer Model,  to demonstrate how these tools and other strategies can be tailored by an agency, with the ultimate benefit being fewer changes to the design as well as during construction.   

    The learning objectives are to:
    • Share with event participants approaches to advocate for Operations and Maintenance staffs’ participation during the design process.
    • Demonstrate ways for design teams to solicit input/feedback from Operations and Maintenance staffs.
    • Demonstrate how two different products were used on the BDFP process to engage Operations and Maintenance staffs.

    Please join LABS for our 4th virtual presentation to learn how wastewater systems may be vulnerable to Climate Change and how facilities can become more resilient.  

    • Identifying areas that will be impacted by climate change stressors such as more frequent wildfires, more intense storms, greater heat waves, more variable winds, rising sea level and extended droughts
    • Understanding how sewers, pump stations and treatment facilities operate under extreme events now – and what else will be needed for the future
    • Recognize that some communities will be more vulnerable to certain stressors, and that the mitigation measures have to be tailored to protect the public health and environment for all communities in the service area
    • Utility staff and their specialized consultants can arrive at a set of mitigation measures – emergency action plans, monitoring and coordination, design guidelines, retrofits, changes to planned capital improvement projects and new projects to prepare for changes in our climate

  • Implementing Food Waste Co‐digestion at Wastewater Treatment Plants: Planning and Operations - Part 2 - On Demand

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 05/04/2021

    This webinar series provides a training opportunity for wastewater treatment professionals to learn about technical considerations associated with the implementation of food waste co‐digestion at municipal resource recovery facilities. Considering recent SB 1383 regulation adoption, publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) are engaging in planning efforts, or already practicing some level of food waste co‐digestion, at the facilities where anaerobic digestion is used for sludge stabilization. The target topics to be covered during this webinar series are: planning for the impact of codigestion on the liquid and solids treatment processes at POTWs, food waste receiving facilities and protocols to accept feedstocks, pretreatment alternatives for source separated organics pretreatment, effects of co‐digestion on plant influent loadings, secondary treatment process capacity, anaerobic digestion processes, and biosolids production and disposal.

    Member fee: $38.00
    Non-Member fee: $53.00

    1.8 contact hours towards CWEA's  Electrical / Instrumentation Technician, Environmental Compliance Inspector, and Mechanical Technologist certifications

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    • Review of factors influencing feasibility of co digestion with organic co substrates and long term planning considerations to balance sustainability and performance goals at resource recovery facilities.
    • Learn about treatment technologies that may be implemented to improve handling of high strength waste (HSW).
    • Recognize challenges associated with feedstock and how to address these challenges.
    • Understand how microbial communities involved in the co digestion of wastewater residuals respond to different co substrates and operational conditions.
    • Become familiar with operational factors that influence successful integration and optimization of co digestion practices.
