As we all know, water is a resource that is always needed, especially in drought-ridden areas. Public water systems ensure that our communities have safe and potable drinking water available year-round.
This course will introduce and review how water is used, protected, conveyed, and metered in our public water systems. The instructors will review the basics of water supply and demand, water distribution, drinking water treatment, regulatory and environmental compliance and more.
This thorough overview of the complete public water system will be of great value to new employees or anyone needing a comprehensive refresher.
