WE&RF Web Seminar Series

WE&RF's web seminar series features scientific experts who discuss research topics and answer your questions. No special equipment or software is needed to participate – just a web browser and phone. Our Web Seminar Series is a resource designed for you and your organization. To make the most of these learning opportunities, we’d like to know what topics would be of interest to you in a future WE&RF web seminar. Please send your ideas to bswartz@werf.org.

Professional Development Hours (PDH)
WE&RF will offer verification of program attendance for web seminar attendees to use toward Professional Development Hours (PDHs). While WE&RF calculates educational credits following a standardized method that is widely accepted by many certification and licensing agencies, many states differ in the types and/or numbers of credits they will approve for specific educational events. Because of this, participants are responsible for exploring their state requirements and for ensuring that WE&RF web seminar participation credits are accepted. To find out about PDH requirements or licensure and/or certification, contact your state/territory licensure board.

Multi-Purpose Water Reuse in the Power Sector: An Investigation at an Electric Utility and Wetland in Florida 
Thursday, August 10, 2017  2:00 - 3:15 pm ET

 Thermoelectric power production facilities require a significant volume of water for cooling and boiler systems. In order to minimize their dependence on freshwater sources, the opportunities with the use of municipal reclaimed water are increasingly being assessed. Particularly in the U.S., there is an enormous opportunity for both municipal wastewater and power utilities to collaborate for the mutually beneficial use of reclaimed water. For instance, about 75-80% of all existing and proposed power plants are within 10 miles of a municipal wastewater treatment facility. Despite close proximity to the wastewater facilities, only 60 of 5000 power plants current use municipal reclaimed water for cooling tower and boiler applications.

WE&RF in collaboration with Florida Power and Light funded this project to investigate the application of treated municipal wastewater for reuse applications in the power sector, specifically for cooling water, boiler make-up, and for wetland rehydration purposes in Florida. This webcast will present: 1) opportunities, challenges, and case studies on the application of municipal reclaimed water at electric utilities; 2) effectiveness of innovative and traditional treatment technologies for the removal of targeted contaminants; and 3) cost-comparison of selected treatment trains for reclaimed water treatment considered in this study.

Understanding and Use of Climate and Hydrological Data on the Water Resources Dashboard

Water resource managers, city planners, and the public are witnessing changes in the climate. To better plan for the future, the American Planning Association, American Water Works Association, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, NOAA, WE&RF, and the Water Research Foundation collaborated to create a water resources dashboard – a one-stop location for water-relevant data sets. (http://toolkit.climate.gov/topics/water-resources/water-resources-dashboard).
