Date & Time:

The Developing Operations Plans training will be held on the following date and time:

September 11 2:00AM-4:00PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.


Your only licensed operator has just left town due to a family emergency and handed you the phone number of a certified operator in the next town. Will the substitute operator know how your system works and what needs to be done daily to keep the water safe and in compliance? A properly prepared Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Plan is one of a water purveyor’s most important documents.


The O&M Plan is a “living” document that explains how a public water system is to be operated and maintained on a day-to-day basis to ensure public health, safety and compliance with applicable regulations. In addition to being an important training tool for new staff, the O&M manual serves as a practical handbook by which a qualified substitute operator or a new operator can operate and maintain the system in a safe and reliable manner in absence of the system’s primary operator.

Participants will learn:

·        The vital elements that comprise an O&M Plan

·        The most important tools needed for developing an O&M Plan

·        Policies and procedures for keeping your O&M Plan updated

·        Free resources and templates for developing O&M Plans


Operator Basics Series: The recommended audience includes water system operators, managers and maintenance staff



This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
