Opening for the Season: Seasonal Drinking Water Systems ’’Startup’’ & Ensuring Safe Drinking Water & System Resiliency

Opening and closing 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 throughout the entire season, while ensuring system resiliency.

We will kick off this training with steps to take to prepare for reopening. Next we will explore Massachuusetts' requirements and certification process before describing how to collect representative water samples. Then, we will conclude with tips, tricks, and a robust Q&A. Don't forget your questions! Lastly, following the lunch break, we will conclude with a facility/site tour of our host system.

Class will be held In-Person. Class size varies by location. To allow for adequate training time for each participant, we will be watching registrations closely and update this page if we need to begin a Wait List for either location. Registration is on a first come first served basis.

To sign up for this class, REGISTER ONLINE, or contact Jason Blais
