Filamentous Bacteria & Process Control


This one-hour course will introduce you to a simple approach to identifying filamentous bacteria in activated sludge as well as conditions that favor their growth, and will provide corrective actions for limiting this growth in the system.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify different types of filamentous bacteria commonly found in activated sludge
  • Understand common causes for the growth of filamentous bacteria in the system
  • Perform microscopic techniques as well as QA/QC procedures, staining, and enumeration of filamentous bacteria
  • Understand process control adjustments required to control and eliminate filamentous bacteria growth in the treatment system

Wastewater Microbiology & Process Control - Introduction to


This one-hour course is an exciting introduction and review of wastewater treatment and process control. Simple laboratory techniques and the identification of different types of microorganisms are included. This course is highly recommended for entry-level personnel and for operators wanting a review of wastewater microbiology and process control. By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Perform proper sampling techniques and laboratory QA/QC for simple microbiological analyses
  • Identify different classifications of microorganisms such as bacteria, protozoa and metazoans
  • Understand the role of different types of microorganisms and the significance of their
    dominance in the treatment system

Wastewater Microbiology & Process Control - Part One


This three-hour course is a video recording of Toni's presentation at the annual operator conference presented in early 2010. In the course, you will see actual video clips of bristle worms, water bears, flagellates, and many others, as they are seen under the microscope. The video clips present these microorganisms in high-definition, enabling the student to better understand their characteristics and movement, and their interactions in the aeration basin. Toni will discuss each one and share techniques for identifying them under your microscope.

This course will provide troubleshooting solutions for sludge bulking, improper floc formation, and various process control adjustments. The course is an easy overview of the microorganisms found in the wastewater treatment plant and discussion of each group.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • identify the different types of microorganisms; such as protozoa, metazoa, and bacteria
  • understand the importance of good sampling technique for microbiological analysis
  • classify groups of microorganisms and their characteristics within the treatment plant
  • demonstrate proper laboratory QA/QC procedures and documentation for monitoring and documenting microorganisms present in wastewater

Wastewater Microbiology & Process Control - Part Two


This three-hour course is a video recording of Toni's presentation at the annual operator conference presented in early 2011. In the course, you will see actual video clips of bristle worms, water bears, flagellates, and many others, as they are seen under the microscope. The video clips present these microorganisms in high-definition, enabling the student to better understand their characteristics and movement, and their interactions in the aeration basin. Toni will discuss each one and share techniques for identifying them under your microscope.

Process control is an important aspect of the wastewater treatment operations. The instructor will provide more in-depth instruction on various process control techniques that include wastewater microbiology.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • identify and troubleshoot treatment process issues as well as their causes
  • take corrective actions for process control
  • diagnose treatment system issues using the microscope
  • perform advanced microbiological process control analyses including protozoan/metazoan counts, filamentous bacteria counts, India ink and Gram staining techniques
