Date & Time:
The Once More into the Bleach: Handling & Application of Sodium Hypochlorite training will be held on the following date and time:

April 2 2:00PM-4:00PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.

Chlorine is the most commonly used drinking water disinfectant in all regions of the world. Today, about 98 percent of U.S. water treatment systems use some type of chlorine disinfection process to help provide safe drinking water. By a huge margin, sodium hypochlorite is the disinfectant used by the vast majority of small (less than 10,000 population) water systems. Hypochlorite is also the most hazardous chemical used by most of these water systems. If improperly handled, sodium hypochlorite can create a hazardous and potentially fatal environment.


This learning event gives small water system operators the knowledge, skills and resources necessary to safely handle and reliably feed sodium hypochlorite.


Participants will learn:

·        The physical and chemical properties of sodium hypochlorite

·        Safe handling of sodium hypochlorite

·        Understanding hypochlorite decay and its effect on treatment

·        How to read and use the sodium hypochlorite SDS

·        20 best practices for feeding hypochlorite

The recommended audience includes all water system operators that use hypochlorite.


This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
