Education Tracks of Note:

Troubleshooting Onsite Systems.The many factors which can cause an onsite system to not function properly makes expertise in diagnosing system problems a valuable skill, especially as the use of more advanced treatment systems continues to increase. Hear from an all-star team of industry experts who will share their best practices for finding and fixing problems anywhere in the treatment train.

Septage Treatment. Processing septage can be a useful and lucrative venture, particularly in areas where public utilities don’t accept septage, or where pumpers have to haul their loads long distances to unload. If you are considering opening a private septage treatment facility, this course will provide you with a soup-to-nuts overview of the steps you will want to take to set up such a venture.

CPOW Track. Local contractors and regulators won’t want to miss the afternoon track covering issues specific to Colorado.
