Title: Sound Procedures for Drinking Water Sampling
Description: This course will provide fundamental information to anyone responsible for taking drinking water samples. It will explain key concepts and sound scientific procedures that should be included in every sampling program, and feature focused, hands-on demonstrations to illustrate essential points and techniques. Instruction will focus on the need for accurate sampling, and follow the sample through the chain of custody to its eventual analysis. Proper sampling methods are critical in evaluating the quality of the water you produce, or distribute. Without strict attention to detail in procedures and methodology, a host of problems can develop. Don’t let this happen to you! Though this course is lecture and discussion based, it will also feature focused, hands-on video demonstrations to illustrate essential points and techniques.
Who Should Attend: Water utility operators, managers and laboratory personnel as well as anyone who deals with drinking water sampling procedures or sample analysis in water distribution and treatment, will find this seminar a practical learning experience. Regulators, and wastewater personnel would also benefit from this application-oriented instructional program.
