Denver -- The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has announced the publication of the first revision of the AWWA G100 Standard, Water Treatment Plant Operation and Management, and the publication of its companion Operational Guide to AWWA Standard G100, Water Treatment Plant Operation and Management.
AWWA G100 Standard teaches utility managers how to not only meet and surpass regulatory requirements, but to also optimize plant performance on a continuous basis, and make ongoing improvements to plant operations and management. Written and approved by recognized industry experts, G100 provides best practices for all aspects of water treatment plant operations.
All four key areas of water treatment plant operation and management are covered in the G100 Standard:
- Regulatory compliance
- Operational management practices
- Real property management and plant maintenance
- Water quality management
The AWWA G100 Standard and the operational guide complete the series of core utility management standards and guides that provide consensus-approved best practices. In addition to G100, the series includes G200, Distribution System Operation and Management; G300, Source Water Protection; and G400, Utility Management System to cover all aspects of water utility operations.
The G100 operational guide is designed to help managers implement the requirements of the G100 Standard. The guide explains each of G100’s requirements and includes examples of processes, procedures, forms, and progress checklists used by water utilities that have implemented the standard.
The ANSI-approved AWWA G100 Standard and Operational Guide are available in the AWWA Bookstore at http://www.awwa.org/bookstore.
