Title: Sanitary Survey Preparation and Follow-Up Compliance
Description: This course is designed to assist water system operators in recognizing sanitary risks in their own systems and understanding what actions should be taken to correct them. It will also assist water system operators in preparing for sanitary surveys by the drinking water regulatory agency. Sanitary risks that will be discussed include facilities, operation, and maintenance of the entire water system from source to tap. Operators will become familiar with the concept of multiple barrier protection and learn how its interruption can adversely affect the ability of the system to provide safe drinking water. In general, you'll learn what is required by the drinking water regulations in terms of sanitary surveys, including the Groundwater Rule (GWR). You'll gain the insight and practical skills needed to assess and correct sanitary deficiencies in the water system you operate.
Who Should Attend: This course is designed for operators. It will be especially useful to new or less experienced personnel but will be of interest to seasoned operators, supervisors, plant managers and entry level engineers who are interested in expanding their knowledge on the subject area. The seminar will focus on fundamental concepts related to meeting the Safe Drinking Water Act by establishing “multiple barriers and by using proper sampling and recordkeeping.
Pre-requisites: None

Learning Objectives/Outcomes: The goal of this class is for learners to be able to fully protect their systems against any possible contamination of their water from source to tap by establishing contamination barriers such as source protection, proper treatment methods, distribution system protection, recordkeeping and other SDWA requirements. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: Discuss the outcomes described at start of class; Describe the SDWA and how it relates to sanitary surveys; Explain the “multiple barrier” concept treating drinking water; List at least five different deficiencies found in water systems; Identify at least three reasons why screening of vents & tank overflows is required; Explain the importance of securing finished water storage; and List at least two major sources of SRF funding.
