This 2 hour online class “Introduction to WasteWater Microbiology”, has ended but contact us for future dates.
Designed for anyone who manages wastewater systems of any size or technology requiring monitoring of biological organisms – and is not only for large municipal systems. Using stunning phase contrast electron microscope images, this is an opportunity to see & appreciate minute living organisms which form the basis of treating and recycling water. Fee is $40 with the option to purchase, at $35, a CD of slides and video resources. CD Purchase Information attached here.

The destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 has forever impacted the Gulf Coast. The devastation and subsequent rebuilding has led to a shift in ideology from just simply “building back” to “building better” to reduce the impact of a similar storm in the future.
The Jackson County Utility Authority, hard hit by the storm, recently began development of decentralized wastewater infrastructure in Big Point and Wade, Miss. Neel-Schaffer Engineering of Jackson, Miss., was selected as the design engineer for the projects. The firm selected a fixed film media filter as the technology of choice to provide advanced wastewater treatment, followed by drip irrigation to disperse the highly-treated wastewater back into the environment.
“Clean water will be the oil of the 21st Century.” The accuracy and magnitude of this statement is resonating worldwide. There is no more important endeavor by governments and citizens than the protection and conservation of all water resources.
