Event Description
MWEA is excited to announce the launch of the WRRF Academy with the Advanced Biological Wastewater Treatment – Process Model Training.  Developed in response to needs identified during the first EGLE grant, the Academy is designed to update practicing process design engineers, regulators, and operators in the use of wastewater process design models to simulate the impacts of changes in waste stream and process design.  Training in process modeling will help to establish a common understanding of the tools for evaluating technologies.
