The Alabama Rural Water Association is conducting an Operation and Maintenance of Water Systems training class in part focusing on Chlorine Disinfection Training on the dates and locations listed above.

This training will cover Gas Chlorination Safety, Chlorination Operations and Troubleshooting and Maintenance of Chlorinators.

After attending this class, participants should be thoroughly familiar with chlorine safety as it relates to the human body. They will have a better understanding of how gas chlorinators function and learn tips and procedures for evaluating systems that are not functioning correctly. The training will provide information to assist with continuous operation with minimum down time and in developing methods for keeping the disinfection process operational and consistent.

Maintaining a good quality of life for Alabama citizens is an ongoing objective. Water is a critical resource in this process and the availability of a good safe dependable source of drinking water is a necessity.

The training is FREE OF CHARGE and offers an opportunity for each attendee to upgrade their knowledge!
