Hello APWA Members,
Our next Chapter Meeting will be held Thursday, April 1, 2021 via GoToMeeting.
“NO-DES Flushing Program”
Thursday, April 1, 2021 ; 11:45 AM – 1:00 PM
Location: Online/GoToMeeting (see GoToMeeting details below)
Speaker:Bob Little, Water Division Supervisor, City of Fresno
NO-DES is a replacement to the traditional unidirectional flushing program. It consists of a vehicle that can be set-up to flush accumulated sediments, rust, and biofilm from water mains. The truck will also filter out the contaminants before returning water back to the distribution system. One of the biggest benefits of this alternative, compared to the traditional flushing program, is a drought resilient flushing program that does not include discharging thousands of gallons of potable water to waste.
Speaker Bios: Bob Little is a Water Division Supervisor since 1994 and has been with the City of Fresno almost 34 years. His experience includes nearly 40 years total in the water industry having worked in Coarsegold, Bass Lake and Texas. Together with a crew of about 18 employees, Bob’s worked in Ground Water Recharge, facility maintenance, water quality sampling, collecting, and reporting, various treatment methods including Disinfection, Fluoridation, GAC, Air Stripping, Ion Exchange, RO, Oxidation/Filtration, Corrosion Control and Blending. The flushing program is one of his newest assignments and he, along with two operation teams, are working their way through the distribution system one plat at a time. Covid-19 and staffing issues have presented challenges to many of the responsibilities, but he works with a great group of people and enjoys working with them every day.
