Wellhead Protection Training for Utility Employees

 

reviews information such as securing the wells, preventing spills from happening around the wells, and responding to spills or contamination should they occur within the wellhead protection area or distribution system.

If your community has a Wellhead Protection Plan to protect the wells and drinking water source, your utility employees are required to have periodic training. Think about where your wells are located and who is working around those wells -- employees from the water utility, parks department and street department? Do these employees need to be trained?

Let Wessler Engineering help! We presented a webinar (recording below) on Wellhead Protection Training for Utility Employees, and many attendees asked us to make this available for others. The webinar reviews information such as securing the wells, preventing spills from happening around the wells, and responding to spills or contamination should they occur within the wellhead protection area or distribution system.

During the live webinar, there were questions about how to regulate activities in the wellhead protection area. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management's website (Additional Wellhead Protection Provisions in Other Rules) has a listing of regulations, other than the wellhead protection rule, that are in place.
