Region 4 AWOP Strategic Planning Meeting and Workshop

The TSC optimization team, in partnership with Region 4 and ASDWA, led a training exercise and strategic planning meeting September 29-30, 2015 in Atlanta, GA. Participants included state drinking water program representatives from Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Efforts focused on identifying potential roles for third party technical assistance (TA) providers to support AWOP goals and objectives. Investigative distribution system sampling, a fundamental optimization activity, was identified as a priority for TA provider support. Each state developed an approach, with associated action items, to engage the TA provider organizations in an optimization training program for water system staff. A training module demonstration for TA providers is being developed and follow up on each state’s action items will occur at the next R4 AWOP meeting. (Richard Lieberman, US EPA, TSC)
