Upcoming Learning Opportunities

Please take note of the following upcoming learning opportunities over the next few months:

  • Seventh National Water Monitoring Conference (April 25-29; Denver, CO):  This conference will focus on the many facets of water quality and quantity monitoring for improved understanding, protection, and restoration of our natural resources and communities. It will also provide a unique forum for water practitioners from all backgrounds — including governmental organizations, volunteers, academia, watershed and environmental groups, and the private sector — to exchange information, develop skills, and foster collaboration and coordination. USGS, EPA, NOAA, and state scientists and others will showcase new findings on the quality of the Nation’s estuaries, lakes, streams and groundwater, and highlight recent innovations and cutting-edge tools in water-quality monitoring, assessment, and reporting.  For additional information and registration go to http://guest.cvent.com/EVENTS/Info/Summary.aspx?i=09829a55-b77f-49fd-a49d-2615c7e15c89.
  • American Membrane Technology Association’s (AMTA) Spring Technology Transfer Workshop (May 4-6; Knoxville, TN):  This AMTA Technology Transfer Workshop will focus on Membrane Treatment.  Attendees will learn about basic overview of various membrane technologies including MF, UF, NF and RO, an overview of the Isom Lail Memorial Water Treatment Plant and the City of Alcoa’s Submerged UF Water Treatment Plant, including facilities tours of both these WTPs. The workshop will also highlight several membrane case histories, as well as include information regarding Advancement of Energy Recovery Devices in Membrane Separation Applications and a discussion regarding Permitting and Discharge Issues.  The workshop brochure and online registration form are available at http://www.amtaorg.com/calendar.html.
  • Southeast Desalting Association’s (SEDA) Spring 2010 Symposium (June 13- 16; Captiva Island, FL):  The program will have a “Back to the Basics” focus and should prove to be a good introduction to membrane processes for those just getting into the field, while also serving as a refresher and technology update for others.  The program will feature case histories on some of the area’s membrane plants plus hands-on training at the Island Water Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant.  Manufacturers and suppliers will also have an opportunity to exhibit products and interact with users in the industry.   For additional information and registration go to: http://www.southeastdesalting.com/
