Activated Sludge Process Control

Please join us for our Two-Day Activated Sludge Process Control. Indigo Water Group and WasteWater Technology Trainers have teamed up to create a two day activated sludge process control training class. Like our popular Wastewater Cram, this course is loaded with great information.  Attend all three days, just the first two, or just a day on nutrient removal.

Meet the Instructor

Eric WahlbergAs WasteWater Technology Trainers' primary instructor, Eric Wahlberg is a rare breed: operator, engineer, and Ph.D. rolled up into one high-energy, dynamic presenter. His Math for Operators has been a highly attended offering at the Tri-State Conference for more than six years. The Water Environment Federation awarded Eric its 1995 Eddy Medal, given for outstanding research, its 1997 Gascoigne Medal, given for making a significant contribution to operations, and its 2007 Morgan Medal, given for making significant contributions to solving operations problems. Public Works identified Eric as a 2008 Trendsetter for the activated sludge process control and performance tests he has developed over the years. He has written and presented extensively and is a nationally renowned expert in primary and secondary clarifiers and activated sludge process control. 

Course Agenda

The objective of this class is to give activated sludge front-line supervisors and operators, and process control operators and engineers, a more in-depth understanding of the activated sludge process. With this understanding, effluent quality variability and process energy usage can be reduced. Topics to be presented include: the importance of sludge quality, measuring and controlling sludge quality, WAS flow control, BOD conversion vs. removal, RAS flow optimization, secondary clarifier performance diagnostic testing, and a state point analysis.
