Description:
This 60-minute webinar will provide water system managers, operators and engineers a practical understanding of the conditions, chemistry and science behind trihalomethane (THMs) generation in water distribution systems.  Importantly, the second half of the webinar will present a suite of proven technologies that can be employed to reduce THM levels in real world water distribution systems.

Outline:
  1. Background on DBP and THM regulation in the United States
    1. EPA and Stage 2 DBP Rules
  2. THM generation in water systems
    1. Conditions that allow for THM formation
    2. Nature of THMs (volatile compounds, Henry's Law)
  3. Basics of THM removal
    1. THM volatilization - driving force
    2. Role of tank de-stratification and mixing
    3. Role of aeration
  4. Equipment options and equipment form factors
  5. Case studies:
    1. Mixing and Ventilation
    2. Mixing, Ventilation and Aeration
    3. Process control and energy management
Learning Outcomes:
  • Attendees will understand the conditions that generate THMs in distribution systems and the physical/chemical nature of THMs
  • Attendees will better understand the mechanisms for THM removal based on the physical/chemical nature of THMs
  • Attendees will be able to understand the roles of various technology choices and form factors that can aid in the removal of THMs through in-tank aeration
