Fundraising Event for Water for People 
August 17, 2020
Donations accepted through August 31, 2020

The Mighty Goguac Swim is a fundraising event for Water for People.  MWEA member, Christine Kosmowski, will swim 4.15 miles around the perimeter of this 352 acre lake as a substitute for the original plan of swimming the Straits of Mackinac in the Mighty Mac Swim. Since the Mighty Mac was canceled, the Mighty Goguac is the next best thing!

The goal of the swim is to provide access to reliable and safe water and sanitation services to communities in need.  Being on the Water For People Committee for the MWEA, Christine will raise funds for this worthy organization as a part of the event.

A&B Prep Review class.
 
Considering the advanced level of these exams, it is assumed that class participants will have a thorough understanding of the operational principals of the various wastewater treatment processes.
 
As such, this course will not follow the general lecture format of other MWEA classes. Instead, most of the class time will be devoted to solving problems and addressing questions from class participants.
 
Emailed one month prior to class, is a list of questions that are similar to what will likely be on the A or B Exam. It is recommended that prior to class you review and attempt to answer these questions in order to identify subject areas that you want to discuss during the class.
 
The emailed questions are property of MWEA and CANNOT be distributed to others. That being said….we would like you to work with others in your class to go thru the attached questions. To do this, you will need to reply to the email granting permission to share your email with each other. (The Instructor will also be on this email chain, to monitor where there may be areas to address during the class time)

EGLE Cecs: 0.6 WW Technical
Course Code: 1787

Math is a basic skill that is necessary fo the function of any wastewater plant. This course will cover more advanced math and calculations used regularly in wastewater treatment.

There is minimal overlap between this course and Wastewater Math 1, and while taking Math 1 is highly recommended, it is not a prerequisite for Wastewater Math 2. Therefore, this class can be considered a stand alone option.

WARNING: This course is NOT For beginners in the wastewater treatment profession.

Topics Covered:
    Wastewater math Conversions and Formulas
    Flows, Flow Rate and Velocity
    Pounds Formula
    Performance of Facilities
    Sludge Volume and Sludge Density
    Trickling Filters and RBC's
    Process Removal Efficiency
    Food/Microorganism Ratio (F/M Ratio)
    Mean Cell Residence Time (MCRT)

Course Code: 2426

All facilities are required to remove solids from their influent. There is a broad spectrum of approaches and methods for handling solids.

There is a difficult issue related to solids handling for individuals taking EGLE Operator Certification Exams. Questions related to this topic are included on the exams. No treatment facility is going to use all the various methods, therefore individuals can find it difficult to be able to answer questions about solids handling methods not used at their place of work.

Because of the dynamic of this topic, this course will serve as an invaluable part of review and preparation for all levels of EGLE Operator Certification exams.

Topics Covered:
    Primary and Secondary Solids
    Gravity Thickeners
    Sludge Digestion
    Dewatering
    Mechanical Dewatering
    Sludge disposal
    Common Calculations and Practice Problems

The absence of oxygen makes anaerobic digestion a unique solids management process. Using consistent heat and mixing result in the reduction of solids volume and volatile solids content that creates a stabilized product (biosolids) that is used for alternative disposal methods such as land application as an agricultural fertilizer.

An additional byproduct of this method is the production of methane biogas which, when used with a combined heat and power system, ban be a source of renewable energy.

After taking this class, operators will have an improved understanding of the system and strategies, and be better prepared for the day to day tasks of completing this portion of the treatment process.

Topics Covered:
    Process Description
    Description of Facilities
    Management of Operations
    Normal Operations
    Operational Problems
    Data Collections and Laboratory Controls

This course takes the concept of providing proper training for maintenance staff to the next level. Persons completing this class will have a better base of knowledge and/or skills towards contributing to the overall success of any maintenance program.

There is very little overlap between this course and Maintenance Practices 1, and while taking that course is highly recommended, it is not a prerequisite for Maintenance Practices 2. Therefore, this class can be considered a stand alone option.

However, having persons responsible for maintenance duties attend both Maintenance Practice 1 and 2 could be thought of as a department performing due diligence for protecting one of a community's greatest assets.


Topics Covered:
    Pump Basics, Types and Maintenance
    Valves Basics and Maintenance
    Gate Basics and Maintenance
    Gears and Gear Maintenance
    Sprockets and Chains
    Belts and Sheaves

The absence of oxygen makes anaerobic digestion a unique solids management process. Using consistent heat and mixing result in the reduction of solids volume and volatile solids content that creates a stabilized product (biosolids) that is used for alternative disposal methods such as land application as an agricultural fertilizer.

An additional byproduct of this method is the production of methane biogas which, when used with a combined heat and power system, ban be a source of renewable energy.

After taking this class, operators will have an improved understanding of the system and strategies, and be better prepared for the day to day tasks of completing this portion of the treatment process.

Topics Covered:
    Process Description
    Description of Facilities
    Management of Operations
    Normal Operations
    Operational Problems
    Data Collections and Laboratory Controls
    Maintenance

This program explains further the basis for specific process control strategies, the calculations used to implement them and the sampling programs to support them. 

There is minimal overlap between this course and Activated Sludge 1, and while taking Activated Sludge 1 is highly recommended, it is not a prerequisite for Activated Sludge 2. Therefore, this class can be considered a stand alone option.

WARNING: This course is not for beginners in the wastewater treatment profession or those who have not been exposed to the activated sludge process in their job.


Topics Covered:
    Sequencing Batch Reactor
    Trickling Filters
    Rotating Biological Contractor
    Review on Activated Sludge
    Return Activated Sludge
    Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal
    Math Problems

Staying safe and healthy while on the job is not common sense for all. Creating and maintaining a culture of safety first takes a great deal of training, emphasis and reinforcement. This class can be an important part of such a program.

Safety first must be more than just a trite sign of the walls of your plant. Each individual (with your help) has the obligation to return home each day in the same condition (or better) in which they left. Staff must be trained to understand basic safety practices and then to make the consistent choice to follow those practices.

Sending your personnel to this course sends the message of how critical the practice of safety is in your plant.

Wastewater treatment facilities are among a community's greatest assets, both in terms of value to the quality of like of its citizenry and capital investment. It is imperative that those in charge of said facilities take the utmost care of these crucial resources.

Having a good plan for maintaining the equipment of each component is only the beginning. Personnel assigned to perform the tasks associated with prolonging the life of the system assets must receive proper training. While some of maintenance can be quite specific to certain devices, there are many general principles, practices and skills that are helpful in almost every maintenance application.

Persons completing this class will have a better base of knowledge and/or skills towards contributing to the overall success of any maintenance program.

Topics Covered:
    Maintenance Theory, Principles and Process
    Work orders and Documentation
    Personnel
    Tools and Equipment
    Lubrication
    Safety
