New Course at UT Arlington on Tank & Tower Inspection

The Environmental Training Institute at UT Arlington is offering a new course from a different point of view.  WTR 308 Water Storage Inspection Techniques is a 16hr class designed to give you a good understanding of how to safely inspect and document potable water storage tanks and towers.  I was contracted to develop the course earlier this year and now I have also been hired to beIMG_2371 the instructor.  I will be taking a look at the safety concerns of working at height and in confined spaces.  We will review what the key inspection points are, high-tech inspection tools and the best ways to document what you find.  The class is now listed in the Environmental Training Institute Summer Catalog and online at:

this is the place to do it.  OSHA EDUCATION CENTER

“This is some of the best training I have ever had, I am always surprised at what I did not know after attending the classes.  The instructors have real world experience and put worker safety above compliance but teach you the real value of both and how it is possible to be safe, in compliance and may a profit.”   –  Ron Perrin

New rule requires assessment and corrective action

NEW FOR 2014-  The Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) that will be in full effect by 2016 requires assessment and corrective action when there are indications of coliform contamination.  Lets talk about Assessment and Corrective action.

Under the RTCR, there is no longer a monthly maximum contaminant level (MCL) violation for multiple total coliform detections.  New revisions require systems that have indicators of coliform contamination in the distribution system to assess the problem and take corrective action that may reduce cases of illnesses and deaths due to potential fecal contamination and waterborne pathogen exposure.   The rule says “The Distribution System”  of course, what that means is,  ”The Water Utility Manager or Operator” is now required to assess the problem and take corrective action when there are indications of coliform contamination.

Getting started assessing the problem:

A tank inspection may be the best place to start with the assessment.

We have the most choices to inspect your water storage tanks & towers.  Our custom made cameras are the low cost favorite, next is our Remotely operated vehicle (ROV), after that we have a dive team available for the best inspection possible.  We also offer the best method for cleaning your tank.

ROV UNDERWATER
  ROV UNDERWATER

Our qualified and experienced dive team will do the Job right.  If accumulated sediment is found in the tank our dive team can take the corrective action needed to keep your tank in compliance.  Removing accumulated sediment levels removes the habitat that bacteria and other contaminants can use to get a foothold in the water system, with the protection of the sediment the intruder is then able to grow and become a larger problem.  Unlike a traditional “Washout” that may not be able to remove 100% of the sediment due to the tight corners of the tank design, our potable water dive crew can remove all loose sediment quickly returning your storage tank or tower to sanitary condition.  While our inspection methods require no disruption in service and no water loss at all, our cleaning methods require lockout tag-out procedures while working near pumps and minimal water loss to be able to move the sediment from the floor of the tank out to the utility yard.

New non-profit will focus on the safe inspection and cleaning of water storage tanks

Our company has always been focused on the inspection and cleaning of water storage tanks.  It is important to the health of a water system and important to people who drink from it.  For years we have maintained the Clean Water Tank Project blog to share information and news on water tank cleaning and inspection.  Explaining to water utility managers, mayors, council people and board members why they should care to inspect or clean their water storage tanks and towers turns out to be a bigger job that and one person can do.  There is a real need for additional regulation in this area.  Until that happens we will continue to publish blogs, literature and videos to explain why it is important, but now you can help.

The Ron Perrin Clean Water Tank Project, Inc. is now designated as a 501 (c) 3 by the Internal Revenue Service and has been Incorporated by the Texas Secretary of State as a Nonprofit Corporation.

Record High Temperatures May Activate Hidden Microbes in your Water System

By Ron Perrin

What is hiding in Your Potable Water Storage Tanks?

Half-way through 2014 and more than half the country has already seen new record high temperatures.  Warmer water in storage tanks and towers may trigger unexpected growth of some microbes.  Sediment on the floor of water storage tanks can become a safe habitat for a wide range of living organisms.  If your chlorine use is increasing during warmer months, you may already be fighting this battle.
