Water is a vital resource for all communities; specifically, clean water.
The round pools of wastewater treatment plants are thankfully a common sight in cities and towns across our region, state, and country.
The technicians responsible for the daily safety of our community water systems need the most up-to-date training opportunities to maintain their local water facilities and North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) offers just that.
On Thursday, April 13, in partnership with the Iowa Water Environment Association (IAWEA) Region 2 Board, NIACC is hosting the Spring 2023 Wastewater Conference.
The Spring conference features a Department of Natural Resources update from Sheila Bly, a Lagoons roundtable discussion, recognition of the 10th Anniversary of the Nutrient Reduction Strategy, the IAWEA business meeting, Confined Space: Lessons Learned from the Real World, and a presentation from Scott Obernolte about the design implementation and operation of low-pressure sewer systems.
“Operator training is essential and NIACC offers spring and fall conferences right here in Mason City to meet the needs of Region 2 water and wastewater operators.”Sheila Bly, Environmental Specialist Senior | Iowa Department of Natural Resources
