Xylem, a global water technology company, recently conducted a wastewater operator recertification class at its Indianapolis branch.
The course, "Sewer Collection System Reliability," earned participants four continuing education units. It covered a range of topics, including: portable pump usage in collection systems, temporary bypass system design, permanent installations, basic pump hydraulics and sustained high efficiency pumping.
Peter Snow, Xylem training coordinator, said, “We are well-known for our Godwin and Flygt pumps. This was an opportunity to also share some of our knowledge behind the products. It was great to engage operators and offer ourselves as a technical resource.”
Because of the positive response, Xylem is planning to lead additional courses in the future, focused on wastewater and dewatering.
