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.

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.

News Crew Coverage of Water Tower Cleaning

November 7th, 2014, Ginger Allen and the CBS 11 i-Team watches as my company inspects and cleans a north Texas water tower. The tower was cleaned as a normal maintenance procedure. A light- brown dusting of sediment was removed from the interior floor before it could get deep enough to support bacteria and become a problem.  

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The tower was cleaned by a Commercial Diver who was trained at OCEAN CORP, Houston, Texas. The Diver is sealed in his own environment, then washed down with a chlorine solution. Because we specialize in the inspection and cleaning of Potable Water Storage Facilities, all of our equipment is purchased for, and only used in, potable water.

This utility is doing a great job of maintaining their system. However, utility managers across the country struggle to get the funds to properly maintain their systems. The EPA is currently considering a regulation that would require all water storage facilities to be inspected and cleaned at regular intervals. This new requirement could improve the water quality for millions of Americans.

Ron Perrin Speaks to I-Team Reporter Ginger Allen

 

The EPA is taking comments on this proposed regulation until the end of the year. We have the contact information posted on our blog, or you can just take our poll at: www.cleanwatertankproject.com. The poll results will be turned in to the EPA at the end of the year.
