Have you bookmarked us?

With blogs and so many other streams of information, the traditional internet browser bookmark has received a lot less attention. Still, for sites you want to return to on a regular, though perhaps not daily basis, the bookmark is an excellent way to keep track.

We want to be your go-to resource for all things water and wastewater. If there is something we don't have, we'll find it for you. Why don't you make sure to bookmark us today!

2. Report maps arsenic in Maine private wells - With its bedrock geology, New England is one part of the US where mapping of arsenic concentrations has proven effective for well siting.
3. New site: Water is Your Business - In a collaboration between the US Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Water Companies, this new site seeks to shed light on the connection between water, infrastructure and the economy.
4. Water crisis looms for desert Southwest - While not exactly surprising news, recent attention on the Southeast has drawn focus away from the ongoing issues in US desert regions.
5. Minimizing the cost of adding treatment capacity - In Ohio, public water systems, regulators and design consultants have been working together for more than 15 years to ensure that state design criteria for water treatment processes reflect up-to-date technological advances.

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.

Before Next Time......

Please consider sharing this with any operators you think might be interested. We would appreciate comments and suggestions about the content of the newsletter, as well as the format. Thanks!
