City hosts educational gathering for

Florida Industrial Pretreatment Association

The City of St. Augustine hosted more than a hundred members of the Florida Industrial Pretreatment Association (FIPA) in late April for a week long program of facility tours, classes and workshops.

The FIPA, an organization for individuals who work in or are associated with the industrial pretreatment profession which includes the removal, reduction, or alteration of pollutants in industrial wastewater prior to discharge or introduction into a domestic wastewater treatment facility.

The group, which meets twice a year, had an intensive program agenda that included classes on industrial pretreatment, oil and grease management, a variety of workshops and a tour of the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

The group’s program was assembled and hosted by Glabra Skipp, the city's Environmental Compliance Analyst, a FIPA board member and North Florida Coordinator for the organization. It was in that capacity that she had the responsibility of developing the group’s agenda.

 

Of particular interest to the group was a tour of the wastewater treatment plant and its pioneering method of treatment involving a peracetic acid system. St. Augustine’s wastewater treatment plant is the only one in the nation using the system, and so it is not surprising that a tour was of great interest.

Skipp gave a presentation on the peracetic acid system at last fall’s FIPA meeting and the tour was used as a continuation of that presentation. It proved to be very popular with representatives from across the state attending including those from Hillsborough County, Ft. Lauderdale, Polk County, Clearwater, West Palm Beach and Largo.

This is not the first interest shown by the wastewater industry in this process as many are searching for alternatives to traditional chlorine disinfection and are turning to the City of St. Augustine to learn more resulting in tours of the facility being given to other professionals and answering inquiries from other utilities across the county.
