NAWT Pre-WWETT Workshops

NAWT will offer its two-day basic troubleshooting and inspection workshop presented by Bob Wright and Kimberly Seipp. Wright was formerly the co-owner of an engineering firm and is currently with Weld County Colorado Environmental Health. Seipp and her husband, Jeff, own High Plains Sanitation near Denver. The first day covers flow and soil treatment, an introduction to tanks, pumps and alternative onsite wastewater treatment systems. As in recent years, the second day will take place at nearby Camp Camby, consisting of field work, an inspection protocol and a NAWT inspection exam.

Running concurrently with the basic troubleshooting and inspection workshop, NAWT will offer an Operation and Maintenance: Part 1 workshop presented by Dave Gustafson and Jim Anderson. Gustafson is an extension educator in the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering at the University of Minnesota. Anderson is a professor emeritus in the Department of Soil, Water and Climate, also at the University of Minnesota. Anderson is also the education coordinator for NAWT. The first day covers septic tank operation and maintenance, gravity soil treatment system operation and maintenance, along with the operation and maintenance of pumping systems, low-pressure pipes, and controls and timers. The second day consists of the operation and maintenance of aerobic treatment units, media filters, drip and irrigation systems, and a NAWT operation and maintenance exam.
