Date & Time:
The Revised Total Coliform Rule training will be held on the following date and time:

February 27 2:00PM-4:00PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.

Sampling for total coliforms and E. coli in the water system is one of the most important things an operator can do. The new Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR), effective April 2016, affects every public water system. These revisions to the Total Coliform Rule will affect how operators and managers respond to total coliform positives (TC+) and require steps to analyze the integrity of the system as a result of positive samples. Investigation and corrective actions are at the forefront of the RTCR and knowing how to complete a level 1 assessment can be the difference between compliance and violation.


This workshop will focus on reviewing triggers for level 1 and level 2 assessments, who is expected to perform them, and how to conduct an assessment with examples and small group exercises.

Participants will learn:

·        Repeat sampling requirements

·        New procedures for the month following a TC+

·        What to do if you have a positive E. coli result

·        When an assessment of a system is needed

·        How to complete a level 1 assessment of your system

·        Tips on system inspection/investigation

Regulations Basics Series: The recommended audience includes operators, managers, and board members. 

This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
