Staying in Compliance with the

Disinfection Byproducts Rule

(MWWA Course ID: MWWA 21-017)

Disinfection Byproducts graph

Many water utilities have exceeded or are concerned with exceeding the MCL for Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs), and/or Haloacetic Acids (HAAs). An understanding of the characteristics and formation of both of these regulated groups of chlorinated Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) can help utilities develop compliance strategies.

This half day course will provide a brief overview of THM and HAA formation chemistry and some of the common strategies used to reduce and/or remove them at the source, the treatment plant and the distribution system. Valuable information for several case studies will also be presented.

 Learning Objectives:

 Understand how chlorinated DPBs are formed;
 Learn about the common DPB control strategies;
 Review case studies of several MA utilities.

 

 This course is approved for 2 TCHs (Training Contact Hour) for Massachusetts Water Operators.
It will be taught using the Zoom platform.  Participants will need to have a reliable highspeed internet connection and computer device with both video and audio capability.
