Description

Recognizing that there are few training programs available for the people who operate and manage small waterworks systems in Virginia, Virginia Tech and the Virginia Department of Health have partnered to offer a short course that covers various topics pertinent to the operation and maintenance of Class V and VI waterworks. Among the topics covered are water sources, safety, sample collection and analysis, operation and maintenance, regulations, and record keeping. A session on basic math is also included so that the calculations associated with operating a system can be better understood. For example, operating a small water system might involve calculations associated with pressure or chemical feed rates.

The course is rather intense and covers a lot of material over the course of three days. To accommodate the schedules of participants who will travel longer distances, the course begins at 9:30 a.m. on the first day and ends after lunch on the third day . Instructors for the program come from the public and private sectors, and were selected on the basis of their experience and ratings in other short courses hosted and/or offered by Virginia Tech.

Instructors for the course are from municipalities, VDH, and Virginia Tech. Class size will be limited to 25 people.

REGISTRATION FEES

$90 per person - single occupancy
$60 per person - commuter

The registration fee includes course materials, instruction, continental breakfast, daily breaks and lunches, and dinner on Monday night.
