About the Workshop

The National Capacity Development and Operator Certification Workshop will cover topics such as best practices and collaborations between and among state capacity development, operator certification, and state revolving fund programs; methods for building sustainability through asset management, water system partnerships, and operator training; and how EPA, states, and assistance providers can be more effective and efficient in our collective support for small drinking water systems.  There will also be dedicated time for states to exchange successes and challenges and brainstorm on new ideas and strategic approaches.

New for 2018 is a tribally-focused track starting with a full-day session for invited participants on August 8th. Sessions of the workshop will focus on training and certification of tribal drinking water utility operators; asset management; coordination between technical assistance providers; and coordination with federal agencies for infrastructure development. The workshop will provide the opportunity for invited participants to share success stories and brainstorm new ideas on program functions.

Please note, the sessions on August 8 are intended for States and EPA attendees only (Tribal Track by Invitation Only). TA Providers are welcome to join the sessions on August 9 and 10.
