GMWEA offers monthly lunch-hour training sessions -- online. Presented every second Tuesday (except in May and October), the sessions will cover a range of topics relevant to professionals in the drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater fields. Starting at noon (sign in at 11:45 a.m.), ending by 12:50, these programs are designed to fit into the work schedules of operators and other water quality workers, providing continuing education credits. Access to a computer is required.
Check this page often for future session topic details and registration information, and mark your calendar with the dates!
In 2020, the State of Vermont passed Act 164, a law focused on taxation and regulation of the cannabis market. Under this law, through the Cannabis Control Board, cannabis establishments can now obtain licenses to cultivate, manufacturer, test, or sell cannabis and cannabis products in your municipality.
Wastewater discharges from cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facilities can contain nutrients, metals, and pesticides that warrant review and possibly pretreatment before entering your municipal wastewater treatment facility and collection system. This presentation will review the operations conducted at cannabis cultivation and cannabidiol (CBD) manufacturing facilities; review the sources of process wastewater generated by these facilities; and provide guidance on how your municipality should review and monitor these discharges.
Presenters: Nick Giannetti and Garrett Walsh, both employed with VT State Wastewater Management Division
All lunch and learns are planned and hosted by GMWEA's Continuing Education Committee (CEC).
Sign-in Time: 11:45 a.m.
