Submersible Motor Mechanical Seals
Chris Peschang, Layne ChristensenCompany
With the advent of Illinois' ban on the sale and distribution of submersible motors with liquid seals, understanding the mechanics, reliability, limitations, considerations, and parameters of submersible motor mechanical seals has become critical to those who rely on ground water production from submersible pumping equipment.  This presentation will offer the basics on what makes submersible motor mechanical seals tick.

Secure Access Points for Septage Receiving and Water Dispensing
Jay Morrison, Flowpoint Systems/Midwest Water Group
Presentation will discuss concerns with allowing the public to access your system without secure access points. Damage to system, contamination potential and theft are some of the main concerns. Secure access point systems eliminate this potential. We will discuss how utilities can use their existing infrastructure or learn to ask the right questions of themselves, their administration and their potential manufacturers to make sure that they receive the right sized solution for their applications.
