Description

Do you know the difference between a bacterium and a virus? Can you tell the difference between a fungus and a protozoan?

Some microorganisms will make you sick and some will gum-up the treatment works, while still others are beneficial.  How can you tell the good from the bad?

This innovative, fun, one-day class will bring the science of microbiology to an everyday, understandable level.  The information presented is useful for people who treat drinking water, wastewater, contaminated soils/materials, or have public health responsibilities.  This class will introduce participants to the physiology, characteristics, nomenclature, and taxonomy of microorganisms, including those found in drinking water and wastewater.  Related regulatory programs and control techniques will also be discussed.

Topics will include:

  • Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi, Algae, and Protozoa
  • Indicator Organisms
  • The Microbiology of Water and Wastewater Systems
