Commercial Webinars

    Affordable, Low-Impact Solution in Florida Jan 27

    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.

    Designing Commercial AdvanTex® Feb 2

    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.

    Chem Feed 101 Feb 9

    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.

    Solving the Nitrogen Problem Feb 10

    Across the United States, nutrient discharges from wastewater systems are being regulated 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 16

    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 17

    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.

    Knowledge Level: Advanced

    Prerequisite: Designing Commercial AdvanTex®

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

    Wastewater Issues Related to Sea Level Rise Feb 23

    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 3

    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.

    Keeping Wastewater Costs Down in Pennsylvania March 10

    The area around Potters Mills, a village in central Pennsylvania, has a long history of failing septic systems. The village needed an effective, affordable wastewater collection and treatment system that was easy to install, operate, and maintain. Learn how Orenco was able to help the community address these needs with Prelos™ collection and AdvanTex® treatment.

    Knowledge Level: Basic

    This webinar is not currently eligible for Oregon OESAC CEUs.

    Replacing Failing Septic Systems in Ohio March 17

    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.
