Small Systems

Welcome to ASDWA’s Small Systems section. “Small systems” are defined by the Safe Drinking Water Act and by U.S. EPA as those serving populations of less than 10,000 persons. In addition, many programs and tools are targeted specifically at the smallest of the small system size categories – those serving populations of less than 3300.

CapCert Connections

ASDWA’s CapCert Connections is for state drinking water program operator certification and capacity development coordinators. Our goal is to share timely, informative articles designed to help make your efforts easier to accomplish; give you insights into what your peers are working on; and keep you up to date with meetings, workshops, and other plan-ahead events. We hope that this blog will encourage greater collaboration between the Capacity Development and Operator Certification programs and enhance the ability of both programs to support drinking water systems across the United States.
