The Wastewater Laboratory course provides participants with crucial information specific to the production of reliable data linked to the validity of analytical laboratory and field information gathered during departmental wastewater pollution control activities. Participants responsible for this data are guided through best practices and associated standards. In addition to laboratory safety and equipment, participants will gain knowledge in chemistry, biochemical oxygen demand, dissolved oxygen, quality assurance, flow measurement, and sampling.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Personnel should have experience working in a lab environment.
