HAL hosts water quality seminar

On August 3, Hansen, Allen & Luce (HAL) and Water Quality & Treatment Solutions (WQTS) hosted a seminar on distribution system water quality.

While drinking water quality typically emphasizes sources and treatment plants, a variety of chemical and biological processes can affect water quality during distribution.

HAL principal Steve Jones, an expert in extended-period hydraulic modeling of water distribution systems, presented with Dr. Issam Najm of WQTS, whose career has focused on addressing the water quality challenges that water utilities regularly face.

The seminar, attended by some 80 water professionals, covered water chemistry, chlorine residual, disinfection byproducts, deposition and corrosion, and flushing plans, with a focus on hydraulic modeling as means to analyze and resolve water quality issues.
