Elimination of Hydrogen Sulfide Odors with CAIROX ® CR Potassium Permanganate Tablets

REGISTER HERE

May 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm (CDT)
Presenter: Dr. Pamela Dugan, Carus Corporation

Webinar Summary:
This webinar will feature CAIROX® CR Potassium Permanganate Tablets as a unique controlled-release (CR) formulation that dispenses permanganate slowly into flowing water. CAIROX CR Tablets are a safe, easy-to-handle oxidant technology designed to treat odors in municipal and industrial wastewater at remote sites, lift stations, or where feed equipment is not practical. The CR technology is very fast reacting with H2S (on the order of seconds) and other organic odor-producing compounds, making it an excellent choice when retention times are very short. In the fall of 2015, a Midwestern Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) with typical daily flows of three million gallons per day was receiving neighborhood complaints about strong H2S odors coming from gravity interceptors. This presentation will highlight the use of CAIROX CR tablets as a novel and cost-effective choice for H2S removal.

A Multi-barrier Approach: The Removal of Microcystin by Conventional Treatment 

REGISTER HERE

May 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm (CDT)
Presenter: Dr. Judy Westrick, Wayne State University 

Webinar Summary:
This presentation will cover a multi-barrier approach, including permanganate use, as the most successful treatment practice for removal of microcystin from drinking water. Topics include screening and analytical methods for testing the toxicity of a cyanobacteria bloom, the latest on the US EPA drinking water health advisories for microcystin and cylindrospermospsin, and what to expect from the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule for Cyanotoxins.

Biography: 

Dr. Westrick earned her Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Colorado, Boulder and spent six years as a certified drinking water operator at Cincinnati Water Works. Her current research focuses on performing cyanotoxin occurrence studies, determining cyanotoxin susceptibility to drinking water treatment processes, developing cyanotoxin analytical methodologies, validating commercial analytical products and designing a “flexible” qPCR probe to determine the risk of cyanotoxin production. She has developed a rapid chromatographic method for the CCL priority cyanotoxins that has been successfully adapted to photodiode array, mass spectrometer, and tandem mass spectrometer detection systems. She has organized and served on expert panels, reviewed grants, written reviews, and edited a special edition of Toxicon in the area of cyanotoxins.
