Tools for crunching numbers: For communities of any size.

8 week Symposium – an opportunity to learn from the best how to make wise, affordable and sustainable wastewater decisions for your community.

These sessions are offered at no charge but we would welcome your donation to help us host more events like this.

Session One: Watershed modeling for extreme weather inflow Ground and Stormwater.

Introduction by Dendra Best. WasteWater Education Executive Director.

And Dr. Naomi Detenbeck

Dr. Detenbeck currently works in EPA’s Office of Research and Development, Atlantic Coastal and Environmental Sciences Division, overseeing projects to evaluate the most cost-effective management approaches to meet water quantity and quality goals at the scale of small watersheds and regional basins under changing climate and land-use conditions.

She is project lead for e-Estuary and oversees the development of WMOST and the regional optimization support tool.
The Watershed Management Optimization Support Tool (WMOST) allows water-resource managers and planners to screen a wide range of practices for cost-effectiveness in achieving watershed or water utilities management goals, such as meeting projected water demand and minimum and maximum in-stream ecological flow targets.
See https://www.epa.gov/ceam/managing-watersheds-wmost for an overview and https://www.epa.gov/ceam/wmost for download of tools, user guides, and theoretical documentation.

Session Two: Cloud based data sharing, case studies and management training.

Models of any municipal, on-site & decentralized wastewater treatment systems need data, LOTS of data,to assess and manage operations, disasters and the potential impacts of nutrient & pathogen run-off.
What kept you awake at night a year ago has now changed – for ever.
Communities of any size, from 250 to 250K, are facing the new reality of reduced revenue, ongoing repair costs, and wildly fluctuating use patterns. Do you have a cloud based asset management system, or are wondering if now might be the time to figure out how this might work for you?
In any community, there are many employees, departments, contractors, inspectors and service personnel who all need to work together and have equal access to any piece of the data that impacts them – on demand.
Asset management is not just a data base, not just a catalog of parts and activities. At its best it mirrors the system and allows everyone, at any time, to see what’s happening – and what might be ABOUT to happen!
That means storing, indexing, and sharing your videos in the cloud and visualizing your inspection data via embedded links so it’s more accessible, usable, and valuable. Can you to find the information you need, when you need it, and from any device, while tethering your resources together to maximize workflows? Come find out how. Hosted by t4Spatial.

By making a nominal donation above you will receive a notice when the next seminar in this Symposium is published – and thank you!
