Hands-on experience in what works—and, just as important, what doesn’t—in coating water and wastewater structures will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar by SSPC and JPCL.

"Lessons Learned in Coating Water & Wastewater Treatment Structures," to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET Oct. 16, will review actual case histories of coatings and linings used at wastewater treatment facilities.

Through these case histories, the webinar will define performance requirements for coatings and linings used in principal service environments of these facilities, including:

• Collection Systems;
• Preliminary, Primary, Secondary and Advanced Treatment Systems;
• Solids Handling Areas; and
• Chemical Storage: Secondary Containment Structures.
