Public Drinking Water Conference

August 5-6, 2014 • Austin, Texas

The 2014 Public Drinking Water Conference is a FREE, two-day seminar designed to provide information relevant to public drinking water systems and water utilities.

This training is approved for up to 12.0 credit hours awarded to public water system operators licensed in the State of Texas who complete the approved training in its entirety.

TCEQ Water Supply Division representatives will give presentations on a wide variety of topics including drinking water regulations, upcoming rules, operations, cyber security, water loss, new technology, and much more.

Staff from the TCEQ Water Supply Division will also be available to meet on an individual basis with water system operators, consultants, utility and district managers, directors and others. If you are an operator, local municipality, industry, water district, water supply corporation, investor-owned utility or other drinking water stakeholder, this conference is a must. Water system operators can receive general training credit toward the renewal of their water operator license from the TCEQ. If you attend only one conference this year, make it the TCEQ 2014 Public Drinking Water Conference!
