Online instrumentation provides timely process information to operations and maintenance staff, to assist them with understanding the status of the process and making decisions. Such instrumentation is a critical part of modern water and wastewater system operations. This day and half workshop will provide an overview of basic instrumentation operating principles, discussion of water and wastewater-specific instrumentation applications, emerging instrumentation technologies and troubleshooting of field instruments. Speakers will also highlight local case studies of instrumentation application successes and challenges. Workshop will include a mini tradeshow.
There is an evening networking reception for water industry professionals in the workshop location on Thursday, February 23 from 5:00 to 6:30 PM. There will be hot appetizers and a free beverage for those that attend.
