Please Note: This workshop has been postponed due to conflicts with similar events. We apologize for any inconvenience and please stay tuned for a new date.

In order to function properly – meet regulations, repair broken infrastructure, replace worn out components, provide reliable service to customers, protect public health – water utilities need resources. These resources may include personnel, training, money, equipment, spare parts, safety equipment, or technology. As an operator, manager, bookkeeper/CFO, or other utility worker, you may be aware of what your system needs to operate successfully. However, decision-makers or elected leaders may be unaware or may not be convinced of these requirements. In this workshop, you will learn how to gather information about your needs and better communicate them to decision-makers.

Who Should Attend: 
Technical staff including managers, owners, and operators of small water systems serving less than 10,000 people, including local government systems and tribal systems, as well as all other types of water systems, such as: homeowners associations, mobile home parks, resorts/campgrounds, schools, prisons, and more

CEUs: This workshop will be submitted to the state for CEUs for drinking water operators.
