In collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Water Works Association will host a “Maintaining and Achieving RTCR Compliance for Small Systems” webinar. This free eLearning course was funded by the EPA and is only available to operators who work with small water systems that serve less than 10,000 people.
The webinar will focus on four major areas needed by small systems to maintain and achieve compliance with the Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR), including when and how to conduct the RTCR assessment, evaluation of sampling procedures, source water treatment assessments and evaluation of distribution system operations and maintenance practices on coliform occurrence.
The course is divided into four modules. The first module introduces the RTCR by describing the latest changes and impact to operators and their water systems. It demonstrates when and how to perform Level 1 and Level 2 assessments and provides examples and opportunities to apply the new learning.
The second module covers sample site assessment, which includes determining if deficiencies exist in distribution system practices that may lead to inaccuracies in sample collection, possible microbial contamination and data management procedures.
The third module illustrates the major elements of an assessment of sources of supply and treatment in the context of the RTCR.
The fourth and final module illustrates the major elements of an assessment of distribution system operations and maintenance practices in the context of the RTCR.
