RCAC: Pathogens in Drinking Water
September 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Description: Disease outbreaks in water systems are rare, but they can and do happen. There are hundreds of known disease-causing organisms that can contaminate water, and new ones being discovered every day. Even 40 years ago, pathogens like Giardia were not believed to be harmful to humans.
Participants will learn:
- Types of disease-causing organisms that are of concern for water systems
- Regulations addressing contamination
- How to operate and maintain your water systems to minimize the possibility of microbial contamination
Accreditation: 2 California Drinking Water Contact Hours awarded. Contact hours have been approved for the Registered Environmental Health Specialist Program.
