Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Water Treatment Optimization Approach Development Meeting with Ohio EPA

TSC’s Optimization Team met with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) on April 19, 2016 to discuss a joint water treatment optimization pilot project for HABs. Project objectives include developing optimization tools and approaches for water systems and state staff, including a Comprehensive Performance Evaluation (CPE) to identify factors that could limit plant performance during a HAB. Meeting attendees included Ohio EPA managers, Central Office staff, and staff from each of Ohio EPA’s five district offices. Discussions focused on understanding Ohio EPA’s experience with HAB treatment, and developing and prioritizing site selection criteria. The team also discussed project scope, vision, and schedule, roles and responsibilities, and next steps. (Tom Waters, Rick Lieberman, & Alison Dugan, US EPA, TSC).
