The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new virtual course, Iron and Manganese Removal/Control Strategies.

This course will review various aspects of iron and manganese in drinking water — occurrence, aesthetic implications, chemistry, impact on water quality and microbial activity and removal and control strategies. Participants will learn about iron and manganese removal technologies and their limitations, with a specific focus on iron and manganese sequestration advantages and disadvantages.

This course is intended for experienced drinking water treatment operators and supervisors. It may also be of interest to distribution operators wishing to gain a better understanding of sequestration.

Participants will require access to a computer with internet connection, a camera and microphone. A course manual will be couriered to each participant prior to the session.
