WATER TRAINING SESSIONS

are held periodically throughout the entire state of Illinois and are geared to the small rural water and wastewater systems.

If your system has a location that might be used as a training site, please pass the information along to the IRWA office. We want to make our training as accessible as possible for our members. Guest speakers provide information that your operators or decision makers need, at a level of understanding geared to the majority of people. Training is kept informal to provide each participant the opportunity to contribute information or ask questions as the training progresses.
