What You’ll Learn

This webinar provides performance requirements for coatings and linings used on sound concrete substrates in principal service environments of areas of a municipal wastewater treatment facility, including:

  • Collection systems (manholes, lift stations, pump stations, tunnels and interceptors);
  • Preliminary treatment systems (grit chambers, headworks and screening structures);
  • Primary treatment systems (sedimentation tanks and primary clarifiers);
  • Secondary treatment systems (aeration basins, secondary clarifiers, chlorine contact chambers and oxygenation chambers);
  • Advanced treatment systems (filtration units);
  • Solids handling areas (digesters and dewatering structures); and
  • Chemical storage (secondary containment structures).
