Upcoming Events

Section 1419 of the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act requires states to meet federal guidelines for operator certification programs. In February 2002, Governor Mark Schweiker signed into law House Bill 1830, the Water and Wastewater Systems Operators' Certification Act (Act) to ensure Pennsylvania's compliance with these federal guidelines. The act, as amended, provides the State Board for Certification of Water and Wastewater Systems Operators (board) with separate and distinct powers and duties for program administration.

For complete information on the powers and duties of the board, view the Certification Board Guidelines.
