Webcast on Complying with Stage 2 D/DBP Regulation
(NEW YORK, N.Y. – September 27, 2012) – On October 2nd, 2012, two top Hazen and Sawyer researchers will lead a free Water Research Foundation webcast on Stage 2 D/DBP Regulation.
The webcast will provide decision makers for small and medium sized utilities with an introduction to disinfection byproducts (DBPs) and the Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproduct regulation. Featuring several of the nation’s leading DBP and small systems researchers, including Bill Becker, PhD, PE, and Erik Rosenfeldt, PhD, PE, of Hazen and Sawyer, the webcast will offer an overview of methods that can be used for understanding potential compliance issues, determining appropriate compliance “goals”, and evaluating strategies for attaining their goals.
This webcast is being provided free to all interested utilities as part of the Hazen and Sawyer led Water Research Foundation Project #4427, the objective of which is to develop a guidance document to help drinking water utilities achieve compliance with the Stage 2 Disinfectant/Disinfection Byproduct Rule. For the project, the researchers have conducted a comprehensive review of available knowledge on DBP control, providing a method for evaluating historical DBP data to estimate Stage 2 compliance, as well as identifying DBP minimization strategies, providing estimated DBP reductions, associated costs, and information about other decision criteria relevant to utilities. The Project’s final deliverables will include a user-friendly guidance manual and Web-based decision support tool.
The webcast will take place on Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 from 3:00PM-4:30PM EST. The webcast is free and open to the public. To register, click here or visit http://video.webcasts.com/events/pmny001/viewer/index.jsp?eventid=43967.
Participants may be eligible to receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Additionally, the webcast will be recorded and available for viewing at http://waterrf.org/Resources/Webcasts/Pages/default.aspx within 48 hours after the live event.
