Water Contaminant Information Tool
May 20, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Water Contaminant Information Tool (WCIT) is a secure on-line database with comprehensive information about chemical, biological and radiochemical contaminants of concern for the Water Sector. This tool compiles drinking water- and wastewater-specific data in a one-stop, easy-to-use tool.
Course Description: The approximately one hour course covers everything from evaluating contamination early warning indicators to calculating the potential scope of contamination based on suspected quantities involved. The training is designed to introduce new users to WCIT, as well as provide a refresher for current users. The course includes:
- A comprehensive overview of WCIT
- The information WCIT contains
- How the tool can be used
- The benefits of use for different stakeholders
The training will include step-by-step instructions for tool functions such as contaminant search, finding and accessing field and confirmatory methods, generating public information reports and several other functions.
A live demo of the tool will also be given, so registrants without a WCIT account should sign up for an account at least one week before the scheduled date of the training. The course will be limited to twenty participants per training.
