Acrylamide regulation and control in potable water treatment

Date From: 27 July 2017
Description: As part of their continuing 30th year programme, ICheme's Water Special Interest Group invite you to a webinar on acrylamide regulation and control in potable water treatment.
Event Type: Webinar
Venue: Online

Time: 10:00-11:00 BST

Water SIG 30This one hour presentation will briefly cover the use of polyacrylamide in the flocculation process at potable water treatment works and the impurity in the chemical; the acrylamide monomer. The focus will be on the DWI regulation and how Severn Trent Water is ensuring balance is met between overall quality and minimising monomer final effluent concentrations.

The webinar will be useful for understanding the regulatory requirements of polyacrylamide dosing, understanding how water treatment can lead to contamination if the control is not appropriate, and the realised risks for customers. IT will be valuable for municipal treatment engineers as well as anybody interested in the removal of acrylamide from water.
