2016 Water Symposium: Distribution System Overview

Fortuna, CA— Rural Community Assistance Corporation (RCAC) and the California State Water Resources Control Board are joining forces to hold a FREE Water Symposium: Distribution System Overview next month. The Symposium qualifies for six drinking water contact hours.

The Water Symposium will be held May 11, 2016 at the River Lodge Conference Center,

1800 Riverwalk Drive, Fortuna, CA. This event presents the wide aspects and varying operations of public water system distribution systems and proper management of critical infrastructure. The distribution system operator must be familiar with a wide variety of maintenance activities in order to keep the system running smoothly. Many maintenance activities will require advanced knowledge of not only valve and piping operations but also proper scheduled preventative programs in order to dependably produce safe drinking water. This training is designed to provide need-to-know aspects of often overlooked distribution system pieces.

Participants will learn:

  • Disinfection dosing and chemical injection rebuild/maintenance procedures
  • Maintenance guidelines and programs that schedule long-term expenditures
  • ClaValve operation and troubleshooting
  • Asset management and mapping with GPS/GIS
  • Pressure control devices and zone control guidelines
