Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018

Part of the LTAP’s new series of courses on signing and safety, this course focuses on STOP signs and other controls that improve safety at unsignalized intersections. Beginning with reasons for effectively implementing STOP sign placement, course content will examine the components of STOP sign placement, as well as offering suggestions for accommodating uncommon challenges. In addition to STOP signs, the course will present content on other safety features often used at intersections along with signs such as pavement markings and rumble strips. The course will also offer content on common STOP intersection problems such as unwarranted STOP signs and multi-way STOP intersections. The methodology for studying an intersection to warrant STOP signs is included, along with a Workshop, during which participants will be challenged with an example problem and given an opportunity to work through a study to determine the best tools for intersection safety.

The ever-changing regulation requirements are often confusing and costly to small water utilities. Understanding the health effects caused by contaminants and the effect on the community's public health and welfare helps to clarify drinking water policies and regulations. This course is designed to provide an overview of the rule, the public benefits, critical deadlines and compliance requirements. The course will also cover how a monthly or Acute MCL Violation is triggered and how to meet the Public Notification and Reporting Requirements. Along with current standards, the six-year review of drinking water standards and the contaminant candidate list will be addressed. Understanding the reasoning and the logic behind a new regulation can help justify the cost associated with the monitoring and help to assure compliance.

Supplies, materials, and lunch is included with registration.
