IRWA hosts two major statewide conferences per year (one during the third week of April and one during the first week of December). These enable certified water and wastewater operators to receive continuing education contact hours; as well as informing them, their utility boards, clerical staff, and elected officials of their legal responsibilities, new methods and technologies, construction and maintenance issues, etc.
IRWA organizes workshops throughout the year that are held at various locations around the State. All of our seminars and workshops, and the people conducting them, receive IDEM approval as to content and suitability in order to qualify our operators to receive continuing education contact hours.
IRWA hosted events allowed Indiana’s water and wastewater operators to obtain over 9,700 continuing education contact hours within the last year or so.
IRWA has a vast base of member resources to call upon to help communities address any given situation: experienced, certified water and wastewater operators; utility management professionals; backflow specialists; engineers; grant administrators; manufacturers; distributors; equipment companies; well drillers; chemical distributors; testing laboratories; lawyers; water tank specialists; accountants; construction contractors; contract services companies; leak detection analysts; hydrogeologists; and various other water related experts.
