Greensand Filtration 

(Course ID: MWWA 22-004)

 

Many Massachusetts public water systems have installed manganese removal treatment to comply with the MassDEP’s health standard of 0.3 mg/L. Many of these treatment systems utilize pressure filters using what is commonly referred to as greensand media.

This half day class will focus on the proper operation of pressure greensand media filters. It will provide a review of the chemistry of manganese greensand and provide useful information on proper operation and troubleshooting tips. Following the classroom portion of the training, attendees will be given a tour of Bellingham’s Wrentham Rd. greensand filtration plant.

 Learning Objectives:

Review the MA regulations and chemistry of manganese;
 Learn what manganese greensand is and how it works;
 Discuss proper operation of greensand media and share troubleshooting tips;
•• Tour Bellingham’s Wrentham Rd. greensand WTP.

 This course is approved for 3 TCHs (Training Contact Hours) for Massachusetts Water Operators. Live in-person class!
