Comprehensive Performance Evaluation (CPE) in Partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP)

The TSC Optimization team, in partnership with PA DEP, conducted a microbial focused CPE at the Aspinwall water treatment plant in Pittsburgh, PA during the week of September 19-22, 2017. The TSC Optimization team assisted in the implementation of the CPE at the request of PA DEP to assess treatment plant performance and overall process control.  PA DEP staff augmented the normal CPE activities with additional water quality samples and special emphasis on the integrity of turbidity data from sampling to reporting.  (Rick Lieberman, Alison Dugan and Matt Alexander, US E.P.A.-TSC).
