Garver to present at Texas AWWA Capital Chapter Seminar
Three of Garver’s leading water experts are set to address members of the Texas American Water Works Association (TAWWA) Capital Area Chapter on the current state, research, and trends in the water industry. Held on Feb. 28 at Austin Water’s Hornsby Bend Center for Environmental Research, the TAWWA Capital Area Chapter Annual Seminar will feature Garver Water Reuse Practice Leader Michael Watts, Ph.D., PE; and Water Project Engineer Ikram Sayed, PE leading technical presentations on a recent study regarding filtration performance and contaminant removal, and a Garver-led asset management project.
In his session titled “Improving Filtration Performances and Contaminant Removal with Coupled-Ozone Membrane Systems,” Watts will discuss trends for ceramic filtration technology as well as outcomes from a research program designed to elucidate the optimum application of ozonation and ceramic filtration for varying water quality applications. The research was completed at the University of Colorado Boulder, with aid from Garver and Aqua-Aerobic Systems through the National Science Foundation’s Membrane, Engineering, Science, and Technology Center.
Sayed’s presentation, entitled “The Future of Asset Management: Streamlined Tools for Implementing City-Wide Initiatives and Major Maintenance, Simultaneously,” will discuss a Garver-led maintenance and rehabilitation project with Dallas Water Utilities. Garver’s unique approach assisted DWU with a system-wide assessment for its raw-water facilities. Tools were developed to streamline equipment condition assessments, business risk exposure analysis, and project prioritization and implementation for the raw-water system.
Registration for the event can be completed here, and it will be led by Garver Central Texas Water Infrastructure Team Leader Ian Toohey, PE, who chairs the TAWWA Capital Area Chapter’s seminar planning committee.
