A common misnomer in many wastewater treatment plants is that unless they have filaments that are bridging and they can see them between the floc structures, they do not have filaments.

Filamentous identification can help not only determine which filaments are present, but if you know the filaments present you can associate a cause and process control.

These wastewater training courses will help you learn to use the microscope to identify the organisms found in a wastewater treatment plant. What is the species, what does it mean in my plant and what process changes should you make to your own wastewater treatment plant to make the system run more efficiently and effective.

Microscopic analyses of any biological system should be a critical component of any ongoing daily monitor and control programs.

Filamentous Identification using Gram and Neisser stains should be performed when filaments hit very common levels.

This introductory basic course will cover some of the filaments and their causes and controls.
