Details: Idaho wastewater operators and other water professionals are invited to attend. Each class in this series will provide current operational staff with complete knowledge of wastewater fundamentals. This class can help prep for the wastewater treatment examinations. The online wastewater school provides operators with a review of the current practice for each topic in wastewater treatment. There is one final course in this series, January 26. This course is an introduction to biological and chemical phosphorus removal. Attendees will learn about the organisms responsible for biological phosphorus removal, the importance of cycling between anaerobic and anoxic/aerobic conditions, the benefits of biological phosphorus removal, and a brief introduction to chemical removal methods. We will discuss the impact of various operating variables on enhanced biological phosphorus removal performance, including dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, and hydraulic and solids retention times.
