MAWEA Trade Show March 18, 2020 Is Postponed

Given the Governor’s directive to limit attendance at meetings, and out of an abundance of caution, MAWEA is postponing our March 18th Trade Show. This is a quickly developing situation and the MAWEA Board of Directors has had a daily discussion on this issue.  We apologize for the late notice and inconvenience, but we want to do our part to ensure the continued good health of our wastewater industry professionals as well as the general public.  We will be rescheduling this event.   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at  

State Point Analysis Class With Paul Dombrowski at the Rick Alden Training Center On May 22, 2020

Have you ever wondered what your optimum MLSS concentration would be during a wet weather flow? What is the RAS return rate your plant should operate at? How many clarifiers are needed to ensure proper settling, or the effect of a changing SVI on your system? If you have ever asked yourself any of these questions, then this is the class for you.

This hands-on class will demonstrate the testing and application of State-Point Analysis using Solid Flux testing. The expert instructors will explain how to apply this theory to the operation of any treatment plant through settling column testing and by using existing process data and plant information.

NOTE: This is an advanced class and is intended for operators and plant managers that possess a solid understanding of the activated sludge process. Class participants should be ready for an intensive training to learn how the application of a strong theoretical tool will help them better understand and optimize treatment plant operation. This is a hands-on class handling sludge samples, so please dress appropriately.  Space is limited.
