Development of Operation and Maintenance Plan and Training and Certification Framework for DPR
(NEW YORK, NY – January 13, 2017) – Water Environment & Reuse Foundation report 13-13, titled “Development of an Operation and Maintenance Plan and Training and Certification for Direct Potable Reuse Systems”, has been issued.
The goal of this project was to identify the requirements and develop a plan for the operation and maintenance of a DPR system, as well as define the training and certification requirements for DPR operators. Integrating the Hazard and Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) methodology that has been proven to protect public health in the food industry, the report provides a holistic assessment of O&M requirements including operational monitoring, management of operational interfaces, asset management considerations, operational response procedures and training requirements.
The report has already provided input to the California Expert Panel for DPR, and will inform activities ongoing for the development of advanced/DPR operator training and certification in California.
Several Hazen and Sawyer employees contributed to the report, led by Troy Walker who served as lead author.
