Wastewater Treatment Compliance

As Wastewater Treatment compliance now comes under increasing regulatory scrutiny from OFWAT the overall ability of the Water Industry to effectively oversee and manage the Wastewater Treatment process and demonstrate competence of those responsible will likely become increasingly the focus of the public awareness and form a key stand of the regulators investigation.

The recently revised L&DA 10 day Level 5 Management of Wastewater Treatment qualification provides a route to both learn the principles of effective management of Wastewater at Foundation Degree level and to go further and demonstrate competence through a national qualification.
