Early Registration Deadline Looms for AWWA Seminars
Water professionals will learn about the latest innovations and uses of membrane technology in water treatment during two American Water Works Association (AWWA) seminars Jan. 28 through 31, 2008, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Attendees will consider how membrane use can help meet new regulations. Theseminar will also address design and construction issues, costs of installation, and a startup sequence.
The second seminar, Jan. 30-31, will cover "Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration." Scott Freeman, Membrane & Technology Leader at Black & Veatch Corporation and Tom Pankratz, Vice President of CH2M HILL, will walk attendees though preliminary considerations, design, construction, cost and a startup sequence for high-pressure membrane practices.
Specific applications addressed will include: desalination, softening, color removal, disinfection by-product precursors, pesticides, and specific parameters.
