Potable Water Storage Inspection Course 8/2/19 and 10/11/19

Water storage tanks and towers are assets that represent a major capital investment. In 2015, I developed a class for the Environmental Training Institute at The University of Texas at Arlington. The class, “WTR 308 Potable Water Storage Inspection Techniques,” is now being offered for the fourth year.  The class covers how common contaminants that may be found in potable water such as Legionella, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E. coli and other microbes can use tank sediment as a habitat to grow and become a public health threat.

The course also looks at new threats like Naegleria fowleri.  In August 2013, the death of a 4-year-old boy near Violet, LA., was linked to the Naegleria fowleri amoeba. The child had been playing on a backyard slip-n-slide that used water from the St. Bernard Parish public water system, that was later found to be contaminated with the amoeba. The class covers basic safety procedures when inspecting water storage such as safety issues associated with working in confined spaces and working at height. The course also covers inspection strategy development, selection and use of underwater cameras, sediment sampling devices, gas monitoring instruments needed for human entry into the tank, and best practices for inspection documentation. To enroll contact the UTA Environmental Training Institute at 866-906-9190.
