Pumps 101 Jan 27

Wastewater pumps are an integral part of most onsite septic systems, and they come in all shapes and sizes. In this webinar, we'll cover the differences between various types of pumps and explain how to size and use pumps for onsite systems.

Knowledge Level: Basic

Put Controls to Work for You March 10

Control panels are useful for a wide range of water and wastewater applications. This one-hour webinar will cover our various control panels, plus available options, features, and suggested applications.

Knowledge Level: Basic

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

Effluent Sewer Myth Busting March 17

This webinar discusses various types of municipal and community sewer systems and debunks many commonly held myths about them. We present long-term, real-world data that shows how liquid-only (effluent) sewers are a viable first choice for community sewering.

Affordable, Low-Impact Solution in Florida Jan 28

In Vero Beach, Florida, a proposed expansion of the city’s gravity sewer system was met with strong opposition from residents concerned about the cost and the expected disruption to roads and landscaping. Others objected to the idea of having to connect to city sewer when their own onsite systems were working just fine. To effectively launch its sewer project, the city needed a more affordable, less-intrusive option that didn’t require mandatory connection. This webinar explains how an Orenco liquid-only (effluent) sewer was the perfect solution.

Knowledge Level: Basic

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

Put Greywater to Work for You Feb 10

Greywater represents a large percentage of combined wastewater flows. As the demands on our supply of freshwater increase, greywater reuse becomes an attractive option for conserving potable water, especially in areas that are prone to drought. In this one-hour webinar, we’ll explain how greywater can be treated to levels that allow it to be used for toilet flushing, cooling towers, water features, and landscape irrigation (subject to local restrictions).

Knowledge Level: Basic

Recommendation: Attendees should have a basic knowledge of advanced wastewater treatment systems.

Solving the Nitrogen Problem Feb 11

Across the United States, nutrient discharges from wastewater systems are being restricted at an increasing rate. Decentralized wastewater treatment systems can provide better, more reliable solutions for reducing nutrients through biological processes. In this webinar, we'll discuss the use of Orenco treatment technologies for reducing nitrogen and other nutrients of concern.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Prerequisites: Designing Residential AdvanTex, Designing Commercial AdvanTex

Recommendation: Attendees should have a working knowledge of wastewater treatment system design, and operation and maintenance procedures.

See the Big Picture: Life-Cycle Costing Feb 17

Life-cycle analysis is often used in the selection of wastewater collection and treatment systems, but conclusions from such analysis are only as good as the data and approach being utilized. Liquid-only sewer is distinctly different from any other collection system and has attributes that are often misunderstood or aren’t being considered in most analyses. This webinar presents life-cycle considerations that should be included when evaluating Prelos™ liquid-only sewer.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Recommendation: While not a prerequisite, attendees may wish to take “Design with Liquid-Only Sewers” as a companion course. Attendees should also have a working knowledge of wastewater treatment system design.

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

 

Wastewater Treatment for Tourism Sites Feb 18

Often located in remote or environmentally sensitive areas, tourism facilities face a unique set of challenges when it comes to wastewater treatment. This one-hour webinar provides wastewater professionals with an overview of these issues and a comparison of two proven treatment technologies often used as solutions: packed-bed filters and activated sludge. We’ll also use case studies to see how various facilities have overcome problems that include widely variable flows, high energy costs, and a shortage of trained system operators.

Suggested Knowledge Level: Intermediate

Suggested Prerequisite: Designing Commercial AdvanTex

Recommendation: Attendees should have a basic knowledge of wastewater principles.

Wastewater Issues Related to Sea Level Rise Feb 24

Changing weather patterns and sea level rise are progressively compromising septic systems in coastal communities. Existing gravity sewers with manholes within the right-of-way are allowing water to leak in and wastewater to spill out, and they're often not accessible for maintenance during flood events. In some areas that previously experienced flooding sporadically or not at all, flood events now occur several times a year.

These coastal areas need affordable, resilient, and sustainable wastewater solutions that ensure quick, efficient, and comprehensive protection against the potential detrimental impacts of sea level rise. This webinar discusses the attributes of Prelos™ (pressurized liquid-only sewer) and how it addresses these needs.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Recommendation: Attendees should have a working knowledge of various sewering technologies.

Community Sewering with Prelos March 4

Prelos™ (pressurized liquid-only sewer) is the next evolution of sewer technology. In this webinar, we'll explore the history of liquid-only (effluent) sewers and how communities can benefit from an adaptable, economically sustainable Prelos collection system.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Recommendation: Attendees should have a working knowledge of wastewater treatment system design.

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

How to Handle Your Winery Process Waste March 11

Treating winery wastewater can be a difficult problem that requires special design considerations. The process water is often reused for irrigation following treatment. In this session, we'll focus on the regulations and design details relevant to treating winery wastewater, using several wineries in California as case studies.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Prerequisites: Chem Feed 101, Designing Commercial AdvanTex, Solving the Nitrogen Problem

Replacing Failing Septic Systems in Ohio March 18

The village of Christiansburg, Ohio, was plagued with failing septic systems that caused bad odors around town and high bacteria levels in a nearby creek. Learn how village leaders and engineers solved these problems effectively and efficiently – while keeping costs down for residents – with the installation of a liquid-only (effluent) sewer and an AdvanTex municipal treatment facility. This webinar gives you all the details on our award-winning project.

Knowledge Level: Basic

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

Chem Feed 101 March 24

In this webinar, we’ll take a look at Orenco chemical feed systems and discuss a variety of applications, including liquid alkalinity and carbon feeds, dry chemical alkalinity feed, and pre-anoxic return. We’ll also explain typical operation and programming of the systems in these applications.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Prerequisites: Solving the Nitrogen Problem, Build Your AdvanTex Know-How, Troubleshooting AdvanTex Systems

Recommendation: Attendees should have a working knowledge of wastewater treatment system troubleshooting, operation, and maintenance.
