The underlying theme for this series of FREE training classes is improving upon what you already do well. We want to see every Water System Professional in Alabama at one of these events. It is time to look inward, review everyday policies and procedures, and get better at what we do. These sessions will provide information on many relevant topics including Operations Review, Rate Control, Financing, Identifying Savings Opportunities, Operator Succession Planning, as well as an introduction and overview of EPA’s Upgraded Check Up Tool for Small Systems.

Maintaining a good quality of life for Alabama citizens is an ongoing objective. Water is a critical resource in this process and the availability of a good safe dependable source of drinking water is a necessity.

Plan to Join Us! - This FREE training is an opportunity for attendees to upgrade their knowledge!
