What makes a Water Distribution System work?

All the pieces and parts must work together in order to have a properly operational Water Distribution System. Key components of the Water Distribution System are Valves, Pipes, Hydrants, Saddles, Corporation Stops, Meters and Meter Boxes.

This Hands-On Training Opportunity will provide you with the understanding and knowledge of the importance of each of these components of the Water Distribution System and the ways to maintain and enhance their uses.

This training will be in THREE different locations around the State of Alabama and will be FREE OF CHARGE TO ALL ATTENDEES.

We strongly encourage you to attend!!
