Control Calculations to determine if sufficient Alkalinity is in the Treatment System to sustain Nitrification.

 

The Safety Event simulates a simultaneous Confined Space Rescue of an unconscious co-worker, and a Heart Attack on one of the co-workers attempting the rescue. The Confined Space Rescue must continue on, while 911 is contacted, and CPR is performed on the Heart Attack victim. This Event uses a Reid Rapide Gantry System to facilitate the confined space rescue. 

 

The Process Control Event is a timed event giving the teams an opportunity to demonstrate their accumulated knowledge and skill in the areas of laboratory procedures, collections system operation, maintenance, safety, and troubleshooting. The process control Event will split the teams into two-person groups, with one group completing a thorough written test including multiple choice questions and short math questions, while the other group uses Hydromantis simulation software to complete complex operational scenarios on a simulated wastewater treatment plant.
