The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (Commission) is continuing its Public Water Supply Assistance Program (PWSAP) by partnering with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) Operator Outreach Assistance Program to present this three-part instructional series.
Description: Many public water suppliers in Pennsylvania deliver water to customers through aging distribution systems. Water systems may be withdrawing, treating, and supplying water for which they may not be fully receiving revenue because of apparent losses (metering and billing inaccuracies) or real losses (leakage). To help public water suppliers conserve water resources and improve operations, the Commission and PADEP are offering a series of three workshops:
|Session 1||Tuesday, April 11, 2017||8:30 am to 3:30 pm||5.5 Water Contact Hours|
In-depth Training in Water Loss Auditing using the AWWA Free Water Audit Software:
|Session 2||Wednesday, July 12, 2017||8:30 am to 3:30 pm||5.5 Water Contact Hours|
Controlling Water Utility Apparent Losses in Metering and Billing Operations:
|Session 3||Wednesday, August 16, 2017||8:30 am to 4:00 pm||6.0 Water Contact Hours|
Fundamentals of Leakage and Pressure Management for Water Utilities:
Instructor: George Kunkel, P.E., PA DEP Public Services Institute Instructor
Mr. Kunkel was the former water loss control program manager for the City of Philadelphia and a co-author of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) Free Water Audit Software. He has served, or is serving, on various AWWA water loss control committees and is currently Principal of Kunkel Water Efficiency Consulting.
Please Note: These are stand-alone workshops, so you may attend one or all three; however, if you have not conducted a water audit at your utility, we highly recommend attending the Water Loss Auditing course first.
