Date & Time:
The Developing Operations Plans training will be held on the following date & time:
December 6 | 10:00AM-12:00PM
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.

Developing Operations Plans is a free training to attend.
