 Lessons from Operation: A Rain Water Collection and Treatment System, Oct 12, 9:30 -10:30 am PDT, Webinar
Event Description

Williams College’s Class of 1966 Environmental Center is operating the first licensed rainwater collection and treatment system in the state of Massachusetts.

The project team had no idea what they were getting into and is currently making up procedures, experiments, and solutions as they go. The team struggled with unidentified green goo, higher than expected operational costs, and a UV filtration system designed for a system 100 times larger than theirs. And yet, clean water comes out of the faucet and the project is on track for net-zero water performance. Amy and Charley will share their experience and hope to help future projects plan better for operational challenges.

This webinar is approved for the following continuing education credits:

1 LFA (Living Future Accreditation) hour
1 AIA LU|HSW credit. Course number: 171012WATER
