DENVER – The American Water Works Association today announced the launch of its newest event, the 2013 Biological Treatment Symposium, to be held March 28-29, in Denver, Colorado. Registration for the symposium is now open.

The symposium will focus on biological drinking water treatment technology, operations, and monitoring strategies. The leading-edge symposium will dissect the benefits of engineered and passive biological systems from both the research and utility perspectives.

The technical program, developed by expert planning committee members, will address ways to meet current and future regulatory requirements while ensuring continued public health protection during implementation and operation. More than 30 technical sessions will cover high-interest topics ranging from research perception, performance and practice, microbiological aspects of biotreatment, membrane pretreatment, trace organics and much more.
