Operator Basics: Surface and Ground Water Systems

Location: Online: Self-Paced

Tuition: $0.00

This course focuses on information and issues specific to systems that rely on surface water sources for their water supply, but also contains content regarding ground water systems. This course will also provide water operators with a basic knowledge of hydrology and public water supply systems. Learners will understand what is required of operators and/or managers of public water supply systems in order to keep their skills up-to-date and ensure that public health is protected.

Operator Basics: Surface and Ground Water Systems is an update of the Operator Basics program that was initially released by the Montana Water Center in 2005. Ground Water Systems contains the same information as the original course, but has not yet been reviewed and updated to match current standards and regulations.

This course is brought to you by the Montana Water Center in partnership with Academic Technology and Outreach of MSU and funded by EPSCoR.
