E-Coli Contamination - Chlorine Chemistry

About this Event

E-Coli Contamination Prevention– Chlorine Chemistry Disinfection 6 TCH’s

Water treatment plant operators work diligently to ensure that harmful microbes can not enter the water treatment process or the water distribution system. Attendees will learn about E-Coli and the health effects it poses to consumers. E-Coli can be fatal to vulnerable populations. Attendees will watch the movie “Betrayed” The Walkerton Ontario e-coli outbreak which infected 2300 people and killed 7. The water operators lacked training and ethics which ultimately “Betrayed” consumers that trusted them.

Chlorine disinfection is the last barrier that water treatment plant operators have in preventing e-coli from reaching consumers and infecting them. If e-coli has found its way into your water system, chlorine disinfection, if done correctly will kill the e-coli and your consumers will not be affected. Attendees will learn how chlorine works and the chemistry that needs to happen – Contact time requirements – Most water operators like to keep chlorine residuals low to appease the consumers, attendees will learn the vulnerabilities of their water distribution systems and how to measure the risk factors that require you to make sure chlorine residuals are at a level that will kill e-coli before reaching consumers.
