The Clean Air Act initially aimed at dirty air that plagued many cities. The law added provisions about the effects of sources of pollution. The law established quantity limits for the release of common industrial air contaminants. Amendments required stricter control over 189 air toxins based on 350 different categories. Participants leave this course with the most updated information available for the clean air regulations they have to face. Water Safety Plan takes an effective process control rather than end product control in water system as the principal means of ensuring water safety. Control of risks through preventive operation and maintenance with simple and consistent monitoring that allow problems to be detected early and for remedial action to be taken immediately. Therefore, WSP needs to be implemented in all water systems for ensuring safe water delivery and thus to reduce incidence of water borne diseases.
