To kick off the month of August, MTAS Utility Operations Consultant Brett Ward facilitated a training course entitled “Layman’s Approach to the Regulations and Management of Waste Water Systems”. These courses were held at the UT Conference Center (Knoxville), Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Headquarters (Nashville), and the Jackson Energy Authority (Jackson).
The objective for this Municipal Administration Program (MAP) course was to provide elected officials and non-technical city staff members a better understanding of the details of wastewater system operations and management so they can communicate better with customers and citizens. During these classes Ward pointed out challenges that sewer system employees face, such as protecting public health, what’s in sewage and how much is present, and the regulations cities and waste water plants face.
