The New Mexico Environment Department Drinking Water Bureau (NMED DWB) and DBS&A are offering free training for water systems operators, board members, and water sample technicians throughout New Mexico on the Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) and Water System Sampler Certification Training (WSSC).
In the RTCR training, DBS&A trainers will help operators determine if their system is in compliance with the RTCR regulation that came into effect April 1, 2016. This course will discuss how to adjust a system’s sampling plan, identify sanitary defects, and leverage the new regulations to run a more efficient water system. This course is required for SW and WS1/WS2 operators in order conduct Level 1 and 2 assessments. Credit: 8 hours
