Why We Blog at SmallWaterSupply.org

Each week there is really only so much room to share new and interesting information with you in this newsletter. We have to cherry pick the very best to put in your email inbox.

So much more ends up on our blog, where we write a couple times a week on topics that we know you want to hear about. It is our own way of condensing information for you and sending you off in a great direction.

We want to be a source of information you can trust - this newsletter and our blog are just two ways we are making that happen!

Find helpful videos on YouTube

If you're like most people, you've watched a funny video or too on the internet and it was most likely on YouTube. Did you know that YouTube also hosts thousands of other practical and helpful videos too?

SmallWaterSupply.org now has our YouTube channel where you can watch all of our videos in one place as well as view our favorite videos from other members. It's like having us program your very own water TV station.

Right now we have four videos that help you use SmallWaterSupply.org - and there will be more as time goes by. Please check out our YouTube channel and make sure to ask to be our friend!

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.
