Pumps 101 April 22

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

Designing Residential AdvanTex® April 28

AdvanTex Treatment Systems are the ideal onsite solution for residential wastewater treatment needs because they work well in a variety of locations and situations. In this webinar, we'll review the application, design, and benefits of AdvanTex for residential properties.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Recommendation: Attendees should have a basic understanding of standard septic system installation and design.

Put Controls to Work for You May 12

Control panels are useful for a wide range of water and wastewater applications. This 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.

Put Greywater to Work for You May 13

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 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.


Commercial Webinars

Designing Commercial AdvanTex® May 5

In this webinar, we take you through our Commercial AdvanTex Design Criteria, an expansive document that provides detailed information on a wide range of commercial, industrial, and municipal wastewater applications for the entire AdvanTex product line.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

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

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

Design with Liquid-Only Sewers May 6

This webinar explains the ins and outs of designing a liquid-only (effluent) sewer system. Topics include how to design hydraulic grade lines, designing and selecting pump systems, transport-line sizing, and other key details for successful liquid-only sewer design.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

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

Put Greywater to Work for You May 13

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 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.

See the Big Picture: Life-Cycle Costing May 19

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.

Solving the Nitrogen Problem May 20

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.

Innovative FRP Products May 26

FRP, a fiber-reinforced polymer material, is a superior choice for many industrial products. Orenco Composites™ manufactures customizable FRP products that are lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant with a high strength-to-weight ratio. These products don't rot, rust, or conduct electricity, making them ideal for a wide range of environmental conditions. Our unique FRP buildings, rectangular tanks, and wastewater tank covers have many advantages. In this webinar, we'll explain important considerations for specifying our products, along with product configuration options and sample projects. We'll also discuss FRP vs. other materials, including examples from a range of industries and applications.

Knowledge Level: Basic

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

Community Sewering with Prelos June 2

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.

Learn, Design, Install: AX-Max/AX-Mobile June 9

Conventional treatment systems are less of an option these days as more and more small communities look to other, more cost-effective, compact wastewater treatment solutions. This webinars begins with a brief history of packed-bed filters for commercial and community applications. We then shift our focus to the design and specification of the AX-Max and AX-Mobile systems, followed by an overview of installation and maintenance procedures.

Knowledge Level: Advanced

Prerequisite: Designing Commercial AdvanTex

This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

Wastewater Issues Related to Sea Level Rise June 10

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.
