2017 Watershed Inspection Training

The Connecticut Department of Public Health, Drinking Water Section (DWS) & The Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) hosted a Certificate Watershed Inspector Training on September 19, 2017 at the MDC’s Training center.  The training provided public water system staff responsible for inspecting properties in drinking water watersheds and certified operators information to identify risks to their water supplies and provide them with tools to address potential risks.
