Waste Water Treatment & Water Quality with Colorado Springs Utilities
Wed, Sept 18 Evening [4:00 pm – 8:00 pm] 0.25 sem hrs / 3.75 contact hours
Presenters: Sandy Williams (Water Quality) & Brendan Cavanaugh (Water Treatment)
Description: This program combines the CSU popular classroom presentation on the biology & chemistry of your water supply with the Water Quality Laboratory Tour. This experience teaches you the history of water quality, our complex local water system, water treatment processes and water quality testing. Participate in the “Would You Drink It?” challenge and test mystery water samples for general water chemistry (pH, turbidity, total dissolved solids, and chlorine) before touring the Water Quality Laboratory with a CSU chemist. This workshop exposes individuals to sophisticated instrumentation and sampling techniques and allows plenty of time for questions and answers. You will also be provided with hands-on activities on water quality topics that you can implement in your classes.
