National Capacity Development and Operator Certification Workshop

TSC’s Optimization Team participated in the 2013 National Capacity Development and Operator Certification Workshop in Atlanta, GA on November 19-21. A presentation was given during an Operator Certification session discussing the AWOP program and how optimization findings have shaped operator training. Several members of the AWOP “network” (representatives from Region 4 and Iowa) gave a presentation highlighting how the program directly supports the implementation of Capacity Development in IA. AWOP is recognized by many as a proactive approach for providing technical assistance to water systems, with particular interest in the AWOP status component as an approach for prioritizing systems in need of assistance. Additional opportunities for using AWOP to support the implementation of these programs will continue to be explored. (Alison Dugan, US EPA TSC)
