Webinars

Instructor-led webinars enable busy local officials the training opportunities they need to fit their schedules. Registration is Required.

In order to receive credit for contact hours and certificates of completion, you MUST be clicked on and have the webinar page or screen as your only active screen for at least 90% of the webinar. If you click off of this to open and view other webpages or desktop applications, the Webex, GoTo Meeting and other hosting applications we use can detect and record this in our attendance reports.  We recommend you close all other windows and web pages to avoid accidentally clicking on these.

Once you register, we may ask you to take a short pretest. Don't worry if you don't know all the answers -- this test is designed to help us know what information you need.

So that your attendance and participation can be accurately calculated, you will not be able to join the trainings early.  All trainings will begin promptly at the start time.  Please be sure WebEx is the only open program/application on your computer.  Please close all other windows to insure proper credit for contact hours, if applicable.

Best Management Practices for Sewer Collection Systems (CMOM): A 2-Part Series

This course has been approved for 2.5 wastewater "O&M" contact hours.

 

click on the date below to register

Part 1- December 1, 2020: 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Part 2- December 2, 2020: 9:00 am - 11:30 am

As the wastewater collection system ages, it corrodes, erodes, clogs, collapses, and ultimately deteriorates causing unacceptable levels of storm water inflow and infiltration (I&I). CMOM provides a management framework to evaluate asset condition and system performance, optimize operation and maintenance practices, and plan for capital upgrades. Do you have a CMOM plan in place that represents "best management practices" in all areas? Does your plan demonstrate a true commitment to stopping sanitary sewer overflows? Are you following the plan?
