Collection Systems


The Collection Systems Committee is comprised of volunteers from local agencies/districts that hold bi-monthly workshops to share training related to the wastewater collection systems maintenance, design, operations and inform attendees of Federal, State and Local regulations.

The committee’s bi-monthly meetings focus on items related to day-to-day operations, critique of past training classes, plan future classes, provides support and share information to members, and discuss Federal, State and Local regulations.
