VSS D1T1 Part 1 of 3

Thursday, November 29, 2018, 8:00 am until 3:00 pm
Mashpee. Mass

Approximately 90% of New England's drinking water systems - about 10,000 systems - are small and most use ground water sources. Small systems provide drinking water to less than 3,300 people while very small systems provide it to less than 500 people. The purpose of our VSS class is to familiarize students with the small water system field and teach the responsibilities of certified drinking water operators. This class covers the following topics: water quality sampling, wells and their source protection, water pipes, storage tanks, hydrants, valves, meters, water treatment, how to create reports, and Massachusetts drinking water regulations. We will show you how to use basic math formulas to calculating water storage, pressure, flow, and water usage. You will earn 18 TCH credits.

This is class 1 of 3. Each class will be held in the function Room at the Mashpee, MA Water District Building, 79 Industrial Drive, Mashpee. The instructor is Bob Hoyt.

To register for this 3-part class, contact Fee for this 3-part class is $90 for members and $120 for non-members. Class size is limited to 25, so please enroll early.
