Pilot Training for AWWA M36 Water Auditing & Loss Control
September 21st – 25th
RMSAWWA, Colorado Water Wise, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, the Water Research Foundation and Cavanaugh are teaming up to bring you a Pilot Training Program for AWWA M36 Water Auditing & Loss Control. The training will include a kickoff webinar on August 19th and a circuit of training workshops across the State of Colorado September 21st – 25th.
The Program will include foundational training on the AWWA M36 Water Auditing & Loss Control Methodology for water system improvements. Participants will be introduced to strategically applying the methodology and interpreting the water audit data to assess and improve Water Loss performance at the utility level. Water systems that operate more efficiently, with lower water losses, experience significant financial benefits from increased revenues, reduced treatment and pumping costs, public health and customer service benefits from fewer main breaks and service interruptions, and operational benefits from better managed flows, pressures and control valves.
Who should attend: Utility leadership, operations, financial and conservation professionals.
