Qualified and well-trained Drinking Water and Wastewater operators play a vital
role in drinking water quality. The Water Supply Operations Section is responsible
for certifying Public Water Supply Treatment and Distribution Operators, as well
as Wastewater Treatment Operators as prescribed by Chapter 81
of the Iowa Administrative Code (IAC). The purpose of the Operator Certification program is to ensure
that water and wastewater operators have sufficient knowledge and experience to
properly operate the system, in turn protecting human health and the environment.
