Sponsored by


MILWAUKEE, WI, Jan. 27, 2014 -- A new laboratory offering hands-on training for all water management professionals was recently opened in the Global Water Center located in Milwaukee, Wis.

Called NEW Works, Mahattil International started the program to accelerate technology transfer and transform communities using appropriate technologies for water management through advanced instruction and education. Further, state-of-the-art FESTO equipment simulates the complete water cycle, from source to wastewater treatment and all steps in between.

To that end, NEW Works has developed six hands-on and practical learning courses to quickly train water management professionals in the following: Water Purification, Water Supply, Wastewater Transport, Wastewater Treatment, Monitoring & Controlling Operations, and Energy Optimization in Water Treatment Plants.

"For all of the aspirations of incorporating the latest development of water technology, it is still essential to have superbly trained talent operating the systems," stated Dean Amhaus, president & CEO of The Water Council. "This is where NEW Works comes in, as it will be a tremendous resource and asset in meeting this training demand."

Housed in the Flow Lab on the first floor of the Global Water Center, the lab simulates the entire water cycle with four different stations: Water Purification, Water Supply, Waste Water Transport and Waste Water Treatment. Each area can be used individually or work together as a complete system. The stations can also be leveraged to conduct applied research such as modeling and simulations. Trainees are equipped with process control and automation field expertise to effectively manage water.

"NEW Works curriculum was designed to quickly equip water management professionals with the skills to function at an advanced level in the water industry," stated Shajan M. John, president of Mahattil International. "Our courses address the global shortage of water industry technicians and engineers."

An open house is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 10, 2014.
