The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) is pleased to launch a new course, Disinfection: Chlorine.
This course introduces basic concepts related to chlorine disinfection. It will cover chlorine chemistry, its application in various forms, and factors that affect chlorine reaction. Participants will examine breakpoint chlorination, CT concept and dechlorination. Hazards associated with the use of chlorine, safety precautions and safety equipment will also be discussed.
This course will be most beneficial to newer drinking water treatment operators with a basic understanding of chlorination.
Participants will receive 0.7 Continuing Education Units.
The first sessions of the course will be offered on March 12, 2020 in London, Ontario and May 13, 2020 in Sudbury, Ontario. The cost to register is $360 + HST.Read More
