Description

Well before water comes out of your tap, it has to go through a laborious process to transform raw water into safe drinking water. This is accomplished by a water treatment plant which operates much behind the scenes.
Join water educator, Chen Ko, for an action packed one-day workshop focused on the inner workings of a water treatment plant (WTP) aka waterworks. Chen Ko will take a look at some of the technologies and infrastructure which form the backbone of a WTP.
  1. The morning will kick off with a classroom discussion of the "standard" equipment found within a typical WTP - what they do, how they work and why they are there.
  2. Chen Ko is a firm believer of blending theory and practice so after lunch, the participants will get to visit a real life WTP operated by PUB to experience for themselves just how everything works together to effectively provide safe drinking water.
  3. The workshop will close off with a debrief of the day's activities, especially touching on the learning points for all participants.
Participants are guaranteed to walk away with a deeper understanding of what a WTP is all about and how it can fit into your professions.

BOOK YOUR SPOT NOW TO ENSURE YOU DON'T MISS OUT. AREAS COVERED INCLUDE:
  • Overview
  • Coagulation & flocculation
  • Sedimentation
  • Filtration
  • Disinfection

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Anyone with a professional requirement to understand how a WTP works, whether you are a teacher, water contractor, water equipment sales staff or water testing team.
LAST DAY FOR REGISTRATION IS 20 JAN 2017!

Water Quality Workshop Quick Survey


I am planning a new workshop on water quality for professionals intending to further their understanding in the growing water industry or educators wanting to learn about the intricacies of water education.

 

Having gotten feedback from a few associates, I would like to further refine the scope of my workshop before rolling it out. As such, if you can spare 5-10min to complete a survey here, I would much appreciate your contribution.

 

In addition, I will share a summary of the survey results with all respondents. (Incidentally, this is something I would like to see more surveyors practising when I participate in their surveys.) The survey will close on 31 Oct 2016.

 

Start the survey now.

 

Thank you
