Do you ever worry that you won't have what you really need to respond to a water or wastewater emergency? Maybe you'll need a cadre of trained water operators, engineers, water quality specialists, or supplies such as specific valves, chemicals, testing devices and equipment.
The Washington Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WAWARN) is a network of "utilities helping utilities." This network helps water and wastewater utilities locate emergency assistance in the form of personnel, equipment, materials and other services. The WAWARN is proudly hosting a free event that includes an emergency response seminar and a tabletop exercise (TTX).
The event will consist of morning seminar presentations covering topics related to WAWARN, as well as water and wastewater preparedness and response. The afternoon TTX, based on a hypothetical scenario, is designed to bring together water, wastewater, public safety, local and state agencies to discuss roles and responisbilities. This seminar and TTX are open to member utilities and non-member utilities, as well as response partners that are interested in learning more about WAWARN.
CEUs: An application will be made for Washington water and wastewater operators to earn CEUs.
Check in will be from 8:30 AM until 9:00 AM. All attendees must register for this free event so we can obtain an accurate count of attendees. Thank you!
