David Jenkins, President, David Jenkins & Associates Inc. and Dr. Alex Ekster, P.E., California Grade V Operator, Principal, Ekster and Associates Inc.

This 1-day seminar will describe the activated sludge process and identify the parameters that can be controlled to produce cost-efficient and reliable compliance with NPDES standards. The course will open with a discussion of the activated sludge process and its various modifications. Process fundamentals and operating tech-niques based on them will be presented. The seminar will discuss the optimization and automation of process parameters in detail. Tradi-tional and advanced process control and sensor fault detection meth-ods will be presented. Full-scale case studies of optimization and au-tomation of solids residence time, dissolved oxygen concentration, secondary clarifier sludge blanket depth, effluent nutrient concentra-tions and pump station controls will illustrate how energy and chemi-cal savings, optimization of workload and improvements in plant reli-ability and effluent water quality can be achieved for a relatively small investment.

Cost of course includes continental breakfast and box lunch.
