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 OpCert program is to insure
that water and wastewater operators have sufficient knowledge and experience to
properly operate the system, and in turn protect human health and the environment.
