The Alabama Rural Water Association, in cooperation with ADEM, is conducting a series of training classes that will highlight recent updates and requirements to the NPDES Program.

In addition to discussions about the updated NPDES Application Forms, there will be discussions on eSSO/SSORP requirements, an overview of MWPP Reports, Discharge Monitoring Reports, Noncompliance Notification Forms, and tips to avoid noncompliance.

Maintaining a good quality of life is an ongoing objective. Water is a critical resource and the best possible wastewater treatment is essential for a healthy environment and society.

This training is offered for FREE.

We’ll see you at one of the Onsite Class Locations, or... Online. Some of these classes will be offered as webinars as well as in-person classes. Check below for details.
