WWEM the specialist event for the Water, Wastewater and Environmental Monitoring community, Telford, England,
Wednesday 7th of November 2012, 9.30am – 5.00pm
Thursday 8th of November 2012, 9.30am – 4.30pm
MORE than 70 workshops will be running during the event and while visitors will not have to reserve places they will have to plan their visit carefully say the organisers.
A spokesman said: “The workshops will cover a broad spectrum of environmental monitoring topics. For example, there will be presentations on the monitoring of groundwater and on high resolution multi-site monitoring of surface water to inform the development of legislation. Several workshops will examine wastewater sampling and monitoring, and others will look at ways to improve energy efficiency in wastewater treatment.
“There will be presentations on laboratory automation and on liquid handling systems, as well as quality assurance in the laboratory and several of the workshops will cover subjects such as calibration and the use of traceable reference standards. Almost all of the most common water quality parameters will be discussed with specific presentations on TOC, COD, pH, colour, DO, ammonia, toxicity, turbidity, odour, SVOCs and metals. Water level and flow monitoring techniques will also be discussed in addition to telemetry and data transmission.”
The Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring is helping to organise the gas detection zone, which will also run a programme of workshops covering the latest technologies, sampling, calibration, and the benefits to be gained from monitoring toxic, combustible or explosive gases.
