New Missouri and Iowa Training: Hands-On Advanced Lagoon Optimization Workshops

lagoon optimization workshops

Join us this spring for the most in-depth lagoon training we’ve ever offered!

Several attendees of our past training days have requested longer class time so topics can be covered in more detail. We listened!

Lagoon expert Steve Harris of H&S Environmental will be in Missouri and Iowa this May, presenting intensive, two-day, hands-on lagoon optimization workshops. Designed for lagoon operators, owners, and engineers, these workshops provide practical information and case studies that will help you to evaluate your current system, maximize treatment, reduce costs, and ensure compliance now and in the future.

Attendees will learn the latest methods, techniques, and strategies to:

  • Improve BOD and TSS removal and maximize treatment performance
  • Diagnose and treat common lagoon problems like odors and sludge
  • Cost-effectively upgrade your lagoon to treat ammonia and phosphorus

lagoon optimization workshopsHe’ll also take you on-site to a local lagoon system for hands-on instruction on how to test and sample a lagoon for compliance and optimization. You’ll learn how, where, and when to pull samples, and how to analyze the data.

Lagoon Optimization Workshops are approved for CEU and continuing education (PDH) credits by their respective state DNRs.
