For more than 20 years, AWWA and the Partnership for Safe Water has helped large, medium and small sized utilities learn how to operate efficiently with comprehensive programs developed by utilities, for utilities. At the heart of the Partnership is the self-assessment process. Utilities have effectively used self–assessments to identify needs and performance–limiting factors. These needs are then addressed in the form of an action plan that aids in the continuous improvement effort towards optimized operations. Attend this workshop to learn how supervisors and operators can access USDA improvement funds, and how the Partnership helps utilities optimize systems today and in the future.
