WWT trainingSelf-Paced Wastewater Treatment Operator Course

CAPACCIO’s self-paced wastewater treatment operator course prepares candidates for the Massachusetts certification exam. The course includes an introduction and eight modules that you navigate at your own pace along with quizzes to measure your progress.

Upon completing the self-study portion of the course, CAPACCIO holds two 5-hour classroom sessions (which will be held on Friday, April 26 and Friday, May 3) at our Marlborough, Massachusetts offices. At these sessions, we will review the course material, take practice exams, and answer questions to further prepare for the licensing exam. These live sessions are approved for 5 TCHs each.

Please note: We recommend you sign up for the self-paced class as soon as possible to allow time to complete the self-study portion of the course before the first classroom session on 4/26.

Another note: You do not have to purchase the study materials or sit for the exam if you would like to participate in one or both of the live classroom review sessions. You may attend just one classroom session for 5 TCH credits or both for 10 TCH credits.

Source Registration and GHG forms are now available for 2016 data! Reply

It’s the news many of us have been waiting for: the new Source Registration (SR) web forms and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reporting forms – are now available!

This is great news for annual filers, but, right now, you will only be able to submit your 2016 data. MassDEP will notify you when annual reporting web forms for 2017 become available.

If you are a triennial filer, you, too, will have to wait. MassDEP has deferred 2016 triennial reporting to the 2017 reporting year due to delays in the web forms availability. One caveat is some triennial SR filers also submit annual GHG reports and will need to do so using the new forms for 2016 data by the date listed below.

As all of this can be confusing, below is a table outlining the dates:

Facility Type Year of Reporting Due Date
Annual SR Filer 2016 October 19, 2018
Annual GHG Filer 2016 October 19, 2018
Triennial SR filer 2016 Deferred to year of reporting 2017 – Due Date Unknown
Annual SR Filer 2017 Unknown
Annual GHG Filer 2017 Unknown
Triennial SR filer 2017 Unknown

For all reporters: Be sure any new equipment or processes that emit air contaminants which were installed since your last submission are included.

CAPACCIO can help you navigate the new reporting system, deadlines, and ensure you are including everything needed in this new process. We provide a full range of reporting services to meet your needs, from peer review to full submission.

For assistance, please contact Lynn Sheridan, EIT, at 774-249-2565 or lsheridan@capaccio.com.

David Averill, EIT

Capaccio Environmental Engineering, Inc. is proud to announce the promotion of David Averill to Senior Environmental Engineer. Aligning with CAPACCIO’S mission of “Helping Industry and the Environment Prosper” and in delivering high value total solutions to our clients, Dave has been a consistent key player in bringing a variety of water/wastewater engineering and related projects to fruition for CAPACCIO clients. Dave’s promotion will further elevate his role within the Water/Wastewater Engineering group.

A multi-talented engineer, Dave has been instrumental in providing our clients with his wastewater expertise in permitting, system design, system evaluation and optimization, construction administration, commissioning, operator training, operation, sampling, testing, and environmental reporting. He supports several CAPACCIO clients who are regulated by the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) and provides compliance strategy, permit negotiation support, regulatory filings and correspondence, and other engineering assistance.

Dave began as an Environmental Engineer at CAPACCIO in 2014 and quickly came up to speed to assist the engineering team in many areas most notably in using AutoCAD to depict all types of drawings from simple process flow diagrams to more complex piping and instrument diagrams as well as site plans. He became an effective contributor to a variety of projects, including assisting with Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) and Stormwater (SW) plans.

In recent years, Dave has successfully stepped into the Project Manager role and became the facilitator and instructor for CAPACCIO’S Wastewater Treatment Operator Exam Prep and Training Contact Hour (TCH) courses. Dave holds a Bachelor of Science, Chemical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and is also an Engineer-in-Training (EIT).

Ben Lilly, EIT

CAPACCIO is also happy to announce a new addition to its growing engineering team, Benjamin (Ben) Lilly, EIT. Ben, a University of Rhode Island graduate with a degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering, joins our team as an Environmental Engineer (ES1).

Ben who successfully achieved his Engineer-in-Training (EIT) certification in March 2018, has skills in AutoCAD as well as experience working as a water quality field technician, a Best Management Practices (BMP) inspector, and a Sustainability intern.

Dave and Ben work together with others on CAPACCIO’s talented Water/Wastewater Engineering design team on a variety of projects.  For example, the team, led by Director of Engineering, Art Cunningham, PE, LSP, is nearing completion on a project for a large institution which has involved extensive sampling of labs and water use/discharges in numerous buildings to determine eligibility for a low flow low pollutant permit. This ongoing project involves tracking calculated flow rates for the numerous locations and tying the sample data to the actual files from the lab. To make the project more efficient and to ensure accuracy of the data, the engineering team is working with CAPACCIO’s Solutions Design team to develop and implement a customized solution utilizing CAPACCIO’s software as a service, EHS-DashboardTM, to meet project needs and objectives. Stay tuned for the complete write-up when the project is completed.
