ECI Tool Belt Training: DPR and Enhanced Source Control
Join the quarterly P3S meeting, this time for a discussion about the future of direct potable reuse and source control. This is a joint meeting between CWEA's Pretreatment, Pollution Prevention and Stormwater Committee and the Advanced Water Treatment Operator certification program.
Source control inspectors and operators are working together to provide a clean, safe and drought proof supply of drinking water for California.
The National Water Research Institute (NWRI) convened a panel of experts to provide recommendations on enhanced industrial source control for DPR and submitted a report to the State Water Board in March 2020. State Water Board officials have a deadline of December 2023 to develop regulations for Direct Potable Reuse (DPR).
Whatever your role in wastewater, join the meeting and learn more about the future of water and how our roles will change as we move towards DPR.
This special joint meeting is free and open to anyone. Contact hours for CWEA ECI certificate holders is available to members only.
