Water Quality Management is the first course in the flagship Singapore Water Management Series, offered by the Singapore Water Academy. Conducted from 8 - 12 Nov 2016 in Singapore, this 5-day programme presents a rare opportunity for water practitioners to learn from eight of the most prominent names in the water industry, including Prof Joan Rose, Stockholm Water Prize Winner 2016 and Homer Nowlin Chair in Water Research at Michigan State University, and Mr Chan Yoon Kum, Senior Advisor and former Deputy Chief Executive of PUB, Singapore’s national water agency.
Designed by water practitioners for fellow professionals in urban water management, the course will deliver an experiential learning experience combining lessons from Singapore’s experience with international expertise. Expect valuable operational insights and case studies steeped in practical know-how with site visits to key facilities.
The Water Quality Management course will provide an in-depth understanding of drinking water quality guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO), and how various countries have adopted policies and technical solutions to meet these standards.
Experienced water practitioners will give an overview of PUB’s integrated management of water supply in Singapore. International experts will share on the existing and emerging microbial and chemical contaminants in water, as well as ways of how these contaminants can be monitored upstream in the catchments, removed via treatment technologies and managed in supply networks.
Who will benefit
Engineers and/or scientists with at least 5 years of relevant experience in water quality or water treatment.
The course fees are SGD $2,990 (before 7% GST).
