Workshop: Equipping Your Utility to Address PFAS in Water Reuse: State of the Science, Emerging Trends, and Navigating the Regulatory Pathway 

October 9, 2022 | 8:30am – 5:00pm CT

This workshop aims to highlight the far-reaching impacts of PFAS in the water/wastewater/reuse sector. Topics covered will include chemical and physical properties of PFAS with an emphasis on their health effects, federal regulations and anticipated timeline for the development of MCLs, best practices in field sampling and lab analysis for all water, established and emerging technologies to treat/remediate PFAS in water reuse projects, and lessons learned from case studies of successful PFAS treatment on One Water projects.

Learning Exchange: Conducting and Utilizing Facility Condition Assessments

October 10, 2022 | 3:30pm – 5:00pm CT

The Facility Management and Plant Operations and Maintenance Committees invite utilities to a learning exchange to discuss condition assessments within wastewater facilities. We will help participants explore a number of questions related to assessment of vertical infrastructure such as: Why are you performing facility condition assessments? How do you planto use the data? What are you collecting? Are you leveraging any technology to support your assessments? What do you know about these assessments now that youwish you knew when you started? How have your ratings aged? Come share what you’ve learned and collaborate with other utility leaders on best practices related to this critical infrastructure planning process!

Future Visualization Tools for Utilities

October 12, 2022 | 10:30am – 12:00pm CT

Building Information Models (BIM) are becoming the normal way for creating design drawings for pumps stations and treatmentplant facilities, but are we getting the most out of these models that we can? This session will display ways the BIM can be used to improve the quality of design before construction, along with techniques for using the model after construction for asset management and creation of digital twins. By implementation of the standards discussed, owners will be able to see cost saving with reduced change orders during construction and time savings in transferring data to their asset management software.
