Closing & Opening for the Season: Seasonal Drinking Water System Shutdown & Startup Procedures (#2021-22 & #2021-23)

Closing and opening your system for the season, specifically for seasonal water systems, can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Join us as we explore how to make this process as easy as possible, while ensuring safe drinking water for your staff and customers for this seasonf and the next.

We will kick off this training with steps to take to prepare for closing, as well as reopening. Next, we will explore Massachusetts’ requirements and certification process before describing how to collect representative water samples. Lastly, we will conclude with tips, tricks, and a robust Q&A. Don’t forget your questions!

Class will be held Virtually on the Zoom platform. All participants will need access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone that has Zoom videoconferencing software installed, and a good internet connection. If you don’t yet have Zoom, you can sign up and download here.
