Date & Time:

The Maintaining Water Quality training will be held on the following date and time:

November 20 2:00PM-4:00PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.


There are multiple methods utilized by public water systems for providing safe drinking water to the public. High on the list for most public water systems is drinking water disinfection, utilizing physical or chemical treatment methods. Once this safe water is in your storage tank and ready for distribution to the customers, there are other techniques that the water system may want to consider ensuring that this safe drinking water stays safe! To ensure that this treatment process was effective, the water system needs to have a coliform sampling plan that meets the Revised Total Coliform Rule requirements. This would also include water storage tank security, inspection and cleaning on a regular basis. Equally as important is utilizing unidirectional flushing of the water mains/hydrants to ensure the highest quality of water throughout the system. Finally, all water systems in California now need to adopt the California Cross Connection Control handbook produced by the state to ensure that there are no cross connections within their water system. 

Participants will learn:

·        The different types of water system disinfectants including pros and cons

·        Coliform sampling requirements, techniques and the Revised Total Coliform Rule

·        Water tank inspection, maintenance, cleaning and security

·        Utilizing unidirectional flushing to ensure a “clean” distribution system and safer water

·        The requirements for utilizing and enforcing the states Cross Connection Control Handbook, thereby preventing cross connections. 

The recommended audience for this workshop is water system operators and managers. However, this topic would also help board members for public water systems better understand their systems.


This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
