This workshop will address the issues faced with disinfection of drinking water when ammonia is present. Whether ammonia occurs naturally or is added for chloramination, Department of Natural Resources staff will be discussing the challenges you face maintaining water quality. They will also be presenting PBS’s “What exactly went wrong in Flint—and what does it mean for the rest of the country?” A round-table discussion regarding lead in Iowa will wrap up the day.
