What You Need To Know About Us

We are here to support small community water and wastewater operators. We've found thousands of free online resources and created an easy way to sort through them quickly. We've also created a national events calendar that lists training, exams, conferences, and workshops for every state and national training provider that has that information on the internet. In developing such a comprehensive set of information and tools, we are also serving the 800+ training, primacy, and technical service organizations, by helping operators get to their information.

You can call us (866-522-2681) if you need assistance. We will find the right TA provider or expert to help you in your state. We will print large documents you find on our website and mail them to you for free. We are a free service, grant funded to support small community water and wastewater systems. We aren't buying, selling, or advertising anything.
