1. The dangers of lead-based paint (LBP), particularly to children, is well known. Yet, LBP poisoning remains fairly common and the reasons often obscure.

    This video is designed for use with the separate training package, downloadable without cost at the NESHTA web site (neshta.org). The accompanying training materials include the instruction guide, slides, and sample Lead-based Paint Planning Tool. This package and video were originally the formally sanctioned training for in-place maintenance in homes with (or suspected) lead based paint. As a few related regulations have changed, this package is no longer official, but remains useful so long as the user updates themselves on the current LBP regulations and make adjustments to their training with these in mind.

    In this episode, our old Dragnet heroes Joe Friday and Bill Gannon follow the flow of the water at a treatment plant to inspect for cross-connections. Checkpoints along the way: submerged inlets in chemical feed tanks; connections between potable water lines and process water; split chemical feeds in the chlorination system; surface washes; filter to waste connections; connections to pumps, hose bibs; vacuum breakers; backflow prevention assemblies; and the plant cross-connection control program.

    Created for the U.S. EPA Office of Water by the National Environmental, Safety and Health Training Association, the "Before You Begin..." series of videos are intended for training and refreshing the knowledge of state drinking water sanitary survey inspectors, just prior to an inspection. The videos in the series often also are used in public community sessions and councils to inform the public about the responsibilities and difficulties faced by local officials in maintaining their public water facilities, particularly small systems.

    After viewing this video, you will never forget to check for potential health hazards in a water system’s storage facility, regardless of its shape and size or whether it is underground or elevated. The "dead birds" theme song, images, and narration will indelibly imprint these messages: birds, bats, and bugs are real public health threats; check for adequate pressure, quantity and quality of storage water; look for common sanitary defects in vents, hatches, overflows, and cathodic protection plates.

  4. How do you inspect something you can’t see? This video uses music and animation to demonstrate the process. Our inspector and operator also show how to ask the right detailed questions and follow up appropriately, depending on the answers they get. Critical areas to question are: maintaining adequate pressure, ensuring system-wide disinfection, planning and implementation of construction and new additions, construction standards, valve exercising and flushing programs and leak detection.

  5. Developing a cooperative working relationship with the operator helps the inspector learn important information about the operation. Wise old wizard Dr. Water pops in when needed to instruct inspector Janet Reynolds as she conducts two different site inspections. Topics include: preparing for the field visit; source protection; site security; sanitary risks associated with well vents, blow-offs, and appurtenances; safety hazards; and system reliability.
