The Alabama Rural Water Association is providing a FREE Lab Testing Procedures & Hands-On
Training Session at the Livingston Civic Center in Livingston, Alabama on February 27, 2020.

This is an opportunity for individuals involved in administering and working in environmental laboratories that submit compliance data to the State of Alabama to receive essential training and instruction. An array of important environmental laboratory issues will be discussed, including regulations and where to find them, laboratory maintenance and operation, and basic laboratory testing and procedures.

Attendees will receive hands-on training with testing and calibrating. The workshop will also include discussion of common problem areas encountered by environmental laboratories, including steps to both handle and avoid problems.

Maintaining a good quality of life for Alabama citizens is an ongoing objective. Water is a critical resource in this process and the availability of a good safe dependable source of drinking water is a necessity.

This training will be FREE OF CHARGE.
