This training will be an interactive workshop geared towards operators, managers, clerks and decision makers. Please come ready to learn & participate!

The Iowa Rural Water Association would like to invite you to join us and your peers for a FREE training workshop. Get valuable information you need from our expert trainers
to maintain compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and state regulations.

At the workshop, you will conduct a guided self-assessment of your system and identify areas for improvement that are critical to success at your utility. This self-assessment will help you prioritize actions when resources are limited. You will also learn from other utilities that have faced similar challenges.

This six hour interactive workshop will focus on ten key management areas of effectively managed utilities, which make up a framework for a complete and well-rounded management
approach. By making operational improvements in any of these areas, your utility will be able to deliver increasingly efficient, higher quality services to your community.

Technical assistance to address compliance issues is available from State Rural Water Association at no cost.

Class size is limited to 25 participants for this workshop.

This workshop offers 6.0 CEU hours will be awarded in Wastewater, Water Treatment and Water Distribution.
