Ammonia & Disinfection in Drinking Water - Flint Crisis & Lead in Iowa

Sponsored by:


Please join us for a workshop to discuss the issues which you face with disinfection when ammonia is present. Whether ammonia occurs naturally or is added for chloramination, we will be discussing the challenges you face maintaining water quality. We will also be presenting PBS’s “What exactly went wrong in Flint—and what does it mean for the rest of the country?” A round-table discussion regarding lead in Iowa will wrap up the day.

The Iowa Rural Water Association would like to invite you to join us and your peers for a FREE training workshop. Get valuable information you need from our expert trainers to maintain compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and state regulations.   

With a variety of topics, speakers and presentations our training meets the requirements of system specialists (operators), management, office staff and decision makers.

Please visit our website and check out other training opportunities under the events tab, where you’ll find details on dates, locations, speakers, topics and much more.

Technical assistance to address compliance issues is available from State Rural Water Association at no cost.

This workshop will offer 6 CEU hours in Water Treatment & Water Distribution.
