SOPs for Drinking Water & Wastewater Operations

Extended Registration deadline: 5 pm, June 12th, 2019


Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are key to any successful operation. SOPs are an essential component of any training program, provide consistency in processes, and are often required for regulatory compliance. Water and wastewater treatment operations rely on SOPs to establish standards for process operations, calibration of instrumentation and meters, maintenance of equipment, and more.

In this workshop you will learn how to best describe and express procedures, who to involve in the SOP development process, and where to locate the information required for the SOP. We will discuss the difference between the equipment manual procedures and SOPs. After we explore the general layout and expectations of these documents we will develop a draft SOP. Throughout the class we will discuss why and how a variety of approaches to writing SOPs apply and what to consider for YOUR situation.

Furthermore we will explore what it means that the SOP is a “living document” and how and when to update SOPs.
