Design Schools

 

Smith & Loveless hosts Wastewater System Design Schools all across the country. We are happy to get out in the field, meet new faces and share the wealth of design information we have accumulated over the years.

Although S&L equipment is discussed, these are not sales presentations promoting any single type of system. The information presented can apply to almost any project, and are generally acceptable for Continuing Education / Professional Development purposes. Design engineers, EIT’s, DPW’s, students, plant and collection system superintendents and operators are all people these classes can benefit.

We look forward to sharing our philosophy for creating value through efficient wastewater system design. Register for one of our scheduled events at right. Subjects covered during a typical Design School include:

  • Determining Flow Rates
