Title: Sustainable Ways to Manage Your Groundwater Supply
Description: Today’s sustainable methods of managing groundwater supplies reflect the new best practices for providing safe and sufficient drinking water today and into the future. Groundwater suppliers must understand these new best practices to keep pace with regulations. This course is for water utility superintendents and managers who must meet today’s complex and challenging world of total water resource management with a sound understanding of groundwater withdrawal impacts, how to assess them, and, most importantly, how to address them effectively. It will also feature case studies on how to protect groundwater from contamination, conduct a drawdown assessment, reactivate and relocate a former wellfield, and lessons learned.
Who Should Attend: Water utility superintendents and managers; consulting engineers, public health professionals and regulatory officials will also find this practical, application oriented workshop of interest.
Pre-requisites: None
CEUs: 0.6
Learning Objectives/Outcomes: In this interactive workshop participants will have an opportunity to examine: sustainable methods of managing groundwater supplies which reflect current best practices; how to approach total water resource management with a sound understanding of groundwater withdrawal impacts; and how to assess groundwater withdrawal impacts and how to address them effectively. Upon completion of this workshop you will be able to: Identify two regulatory drives for water withdrawals;Name three “hot button” issues for sustainable groundwater supply development;Identify three water withdrawal influences;Name three current water resource conflicts;Name two recharge methods to augment yield;Identify three contamination sources;Describe how a drawdown assessment works;Describe how well replacement can be used to sustain supply; and Describe two lessons learned from GW development plans not working.
Learning Outcome/Assessment Method: In addition to the course’s interactive learning format shaped by participant-instructor question and answer throughout, a multiple choice written self-assessment of learning outcomes will be administered following completion of the morning and afternoon sessions of the course. The written assessment will be comprised of straight forward multiple choice questions covering the core content of each instructional segment (presentation) and general course information for a total of ten questions. Each multiple choice question will examine your knowledge and understanding with regard to key concepts and information presented in a given segment and the overall course. There will be no trick questions. Following the completion of each assessment, a group review of the assessment will be conducted by the course facilitators and the NEWWA Education Staff proctor. Participants will “self correct” their assessments during this review and indicate their score on the top of their answer sheets. Participants must achieve a score of 7 out of 10 correct for a “passing grade”. Answer sheets will be submitted to/reviewed by NEWWA Education Staff proctor during the course sign-out process. Any participant who does not achieve the required passing score will meet with the NEWWA Education Staff proctor for an oral review/debrief following completion of the course. This will provide learners with an opportunity to re-examine assessment questions and answers, clarify information, and develop insight into their responses. It will also provide an opportunity to access additional learning support if needed.
