Arsenic Removal Technologies training workshops offered

Three training workshops on arsenic removal technologies will be offered in New Mexico by the Arsenic Water Technology Partnership Program, or AWTPP, and the New Mexico Environmental Department, or NMED.

Consortium for Environmental Education and Technology Development, headquartered at New Mexico State University, is part of the AWTPP that is sponsoring the workshops. All water system operators and board members of affected systems, engineering and architectural professionals and members of the public are encouraged to attend the trainings. The workshops will count as 7 hours of water-operator continuing education credit sanctioned by the NMED.

The courses will address the cost and effectiveness of arsenic removal technologies as well as current compliance issues for affected systems and information on potential funding sources.

The first of the three sessions will be offered Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2005 at the Macey Center on the New Mexico Tech campus in Socorro. The second session is Dec. 8, 2005 at the Santa Fe Community College in Santa Fe. The last session is Dec. 9, 2005 at the Walatowa Visitors Center in the Pueblo of Jemez.

The workshops are free of charge and will include lunch. For more information and to register, contact Chris Campbell with WERC at (505) 883-2650 or e-mail him at chrisc@werc.net
