2015 Pretreatment & Pollution Prevention Workshop
Greenville, SC
2015 Pretreatment & Pollution Prevention Workshop
For over two decades, pretreatment professionals from across the country have benefited from the utility-focused speakers and panels – and the unique networking opportunities provided by NACWA’s National Pretreatment and Pollution Prevention Workshop. We are glad you could join us for the only conference designed especially for pretreatment professionals. Updates and Topics on Agenda This year’s Workshop program will focus on topics that promise to be important for pretreatment programs in the future, as well as issues that are currently affecting these programs. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) staff will provide the latest updates on National Pretreatment Program initiatives, and Matt Arduino from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will discuss the Ebola virus and other potential risks to wastewater utility workers. Panel presentations will address the proposed dental amalgam separator rule, management of pretreatment programs, emerging contaminants updates, best management practices for industrial users, and more! Workshop Offers Multiple Networking Opportunities As in past Workshops, participants will have the opportunity to meet with the pretreatment coordinators from their regions during the EPA Regional Roundtable session. In addition, building on the success of previous years, we will once again have Pretreatment Issues Roundtable discussions. These two sessions are scheduled to allow participants to meet in small groups and talk about issues their utilities are currently facing or issues that they expect to come to the forefront in the future.
