Presented by the AWWA NJ Education and Professional Development Committee
And featuring: Dr. Sheldon Masters, John Civardi, Steve Medlar, Kathleen Burkhard, and Michael Furrey

The Education and Professional Development Committee (EPDC) will be hosting a seminar on May, 18 2016 at the Middlesex County Fire Academy in Sayreville, NJ.   The seminar will focus on the EPA Lead and Copper Rule (LCR), corrosion control and the importance of maintaining the Water Quality Parameters (WQP) associated with the rule. First published by the EPA in 1991, the LCR was established to minimize lead and copper leaching into drinking water from customer service lines and internal plumbing. Given the recent water crisis in Flint, Michigan and locally in the Newark Public Schools, lead issues have captured the attention of the nation; which has led to renewed focus on maintaining water quality and corrosion control in public water systems.  The lead and copper sessions will feature presentations by Dr. Sheldon Masters of Corona Engineering who will be discussing the Flint, Michigan lead issues; John Civardi of Mott MacDonald will discuss the history of lead and copper compliance in Washington, D.C.; Steve Medlar of CDM Smith will discuss corrosion control practices for public water systems and Kathleen Burkhard of NJ DEP will discuss WQP Requirements and Optimal Corrosion Control.

Additionally, a 2 hour session will be provided to focus on professional ethics for operators and engineers.  2 PDH credits for this session can be used to satisfy the ethics requirement for NJ and NY PE license renewal. The ethics session will be led by John Civardi of Mott MacDonald and Michael Furrey of Agra Environmental.

Attendees will earn a total of 6 TCHs and 6 PDHs which can be applied toward satisfying the professional education requirements for New Jersey Treatment (T) and Distribution (W) licensed operators and NJ & NY PE license renewal. The 2 TCHs earned for the ethics portion of the seminar can also be applied toward Wastewater (S, C and N) license renewal.
