EPA To Hold Infrastructure Operation, Maintenance, and Management Training for Tribal Water and Wastewater Operators and Leaders

From April 10-12, EPA will be sponsoring a training workshop in Nashville, Tennessee, for federally recognized tribes to help increase participants’ skills and knowledge in how to better operate and manage wastewater and drinking water systems. The training is intended for water system operators, wastewater system operators, tribal utility managers, tribal council members, and leaders involved with water utility management. There is no registration fee for the workshop.  Tribes that received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds will be given registration priority.
