Date & Time:

The Groundwater Treatment  Techniques training will be held on the following date and time:


Sept 21 | 10:00AM-12:00PM


85% of California's public water systems use only groundwater as their primary source of water. A significant number of California communities rely on contaminated groundwater sources for their public drinking water supply, requiring the source to undergo a comprehensive treatment effort. Groundwater treatment is a complex topic. The range of contaminants of concern to safe drinking water is broad covering essentially the entire chemical spectrum. Occurrence of groundwater contamination is similarly diverse encompassing both naturally occurring and man-made contaminants. Operators of groundwater systems therefore need a comprehensive reconnaissance-level knowledge of groundwater treatment technologies and how these technologies are applied to removal / control of specific groundwater contaminants.

This leaning event is to provide California water system operators with a reconnaissance-level knowledge of the technologies employed to treat drinking water from groundwater supplies.


This session will explore treatment for the seven most common groundwater contaminants:


Participants will learn:


·       Microbial contaminants (bacteria and virus)

·       Iron and manganese

·       Arsenic

·       Nitrate

·       Uranium

·       Organics

o  VOCs

o  SOCs



The recommended audience includes water system operators and managers.
