U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region V is sponsoring a series of web-based training programs this year for water and wastewater plant operators, and other facilities that have chlorine in a process. These FREE training programs will provide participants with the information and tools necessary to comply with EPA’s emergency planning, notification, and reporting requirements for chlorine.
At the completion of this training, participants will be able to:
Identify entities that need to be notified about the amount of chlorine being used or stored at their facility;
Explain chlorine release notification procedures;
Explain what should be included in a Risk Management Program and submitted in a Risk Management Plan;
Describe common compliance deficiencies; and
Describe best management practices.
