    This class is focused on BSF design and provides you with a CD with several spreadsheet programs for your office computer. We’ll demonstrate how to use the spreadsheet programs to run calculations that determine system design requirements. The programs will help you to size a BSF with proper orifice and lateral spacing, and will determine the elevations for all floats and screen vaults, and the required timer run times. Other spreadsheet helps you with tank and pump chamber buoyancy calculations and textile filter design. Instructor: David Kalen (NEOWTP).

    This class is focused on BSF design and provides you with a CD with several spreadsheet programs for your office computer. We’ll demonstrate how to use the spreadsheet programs to run calculations that determine system design requirements. The programs will help you to size a BSF with proper orifice and lateral spacing, and will determine the elevations for all floats and screen vaults, and the required timer run times. Other spreadsheet helps you with tank and pump chamber buoyancy calculations and textile filter design. Instructor: David Kalen (NEOWTP).

    Regulations revisions have changed the buffer and setback requirements for onsite wastewater systems. Let our team of partners provide you with the knowledge to design and site an onsite wastewater system within RIDEM or RICRMC jurisdiction. Learn about applicable RIDEM OWTS rules and RIDEM freshwater wetland setback requirements, RICRMC coastal features setback and buffer requirements, soils, wildlife and water quality benefits of buffers. There will be plenty of time for RIDEM and RICRMC state regulatory staff to answer any questions. Instructors: Jim Boyd (RICRMC), Caitlin Chafee (RICRMC), Peter Paton (URI-NRS), Mark Stolt (URI-NRS), Jose Amador (URI-NRS), Chuck Horbert (RIDEM).

    Let us teach you about nitrogen transformations in conventional and innovative and alternative wastewater treatment systems. Learn what types of state-approved systems can be used to reduce harmful forms of nitrogen, and state and local regulatory requirements you should be aware of concerning nitrogen limitations. Instructors: Lorraine Joubert (URI NEMO Program) and NEOWTP Staff.

    CEU:4 Class:I-IV

    Emphasis is placed on physical and morphological properties related to the proper placement and performance of an OSWDS. Landscape attributes are also considered. Class provides a good review of soil morphology basics for practicing soil evaluators or those interested in soil evaluations for OSWDS.
    RIDEM CEUs. Half day in the classroom-half day in the field.

    Emphasis is placed on identifying morphological properties indicative of wetness in a range of soil parent materials. Differences of morphology and wetness across the landscape and among different soil parent materials is discussed and illustrated. New techniques used to identify zones of soil saturation are discussed. Recent changes in soil morphology terminology and use are also discussed.

    Field centric workshop focused on the range of soils, landforms, and soil parent materials in southern New England. Participants will examine soils formed in loess, outwash, ice contact, dense till, loose till, and alluvial parent materials found on outwash plains, kettle holes, eskers, kame terraces, recessional moraines, terraces, and till uplands. A range of soil wetness classes will be used to demonstrate how a difference in the depth to the water affects the soil morphology. Approaches to identify zones of soil saturation will be illustrated. Updates in soil morphology terminology and applications will also be discussed.
