PFAS: Educating the Contractor to Provide Superior Service
How do you share information about "Forever Chemicals" with your customers when they learn their water system has become contaminated? With over 5,000 variants, "PFAS" is the most often used yet misunderstood phrase. As a contractor, you have a well-established and trusted relationship with your customers. You need to understand how to share PFAS information with your customer and educate them on possible steps they may need to pursue in the event of a PFAS detection. This offering provides you with a better understanding of PFAS, informing customers and how state associations can serve as resources.

Improving Pumping Performance of Variable Frequency Drives
Pumps with variable frequency drives (VFD) are intended to supply water at any flow rate with consistent pressure. Only the pump control was designed for variable capabilities, so the rest of the supply system must be able to support the pump in providing small flows. Check valves are an essential part of the system to control flow and protect the pump and other water system components. Traditional check valves generally do not provide a wide range of variable flow with minimum pressure loss.

Well Design for More Than One Stakeholder
This presentation will address a recent well installation project where a land developer installed a well which will ultimately be conveyed to a municipality. Both had a vested interest in the design of the well. The primary goal for the developer was to maximize the production of the well to meet the water demands of the developing community. At the same time, the municipality was concerned with water quality issues and avoiding fluoride treatment at all costs.

Fall Prevention and Fall Protection: Understanding the Difference
Our industry is subject to many federal and state regulations addressing fall protection and fall prevention. We may have to climb a derrick, work on a potentially slippery surface, or be especially cautious with body movements when working with and around heavy equipment. You will learn to identify hazards and how to avoid them, as well as the devices available to protect you from harm if you should fall or slip, and how they fit into regulatory language.

Heavy Equipment Ownership: Annual Costs and Predictive Maintenance
Every piece of equipment has a working life and life cycle--part of the annual cost of ownership. The cost for heavy equipment and support vehicles includes the scheduled maintenance and attention needed to preserve that life cycle and eliminate or minimize downtime. Failure to adhere to prescribed maintenance impacts your drilling and overall business operations and can even prevent you from safely getting to/from the job. Technological advances in tires and low-sulfur and biofuels have altered some maintenance procedures and time frames, so reviewing the manufacturers' suggestions for your "new" equipment is imperative as it could dramatically differ from previous practice.

VFDs The Magic Pill Myth Misapplication of VFDs
Most application failures are not caused by a one-time event but rather a cumulative effect of running in a specific condition that exceeds the design. It is up to us to know the limits of our pumping equipment and how to properly size the equipment for the application, the drive does not care. What a VFD cannot do is allow your equipment to run outside of its design point without consequence, and you will learn how to avoid the consequence.
