There may be some Rural Water and/or Wastewater Systems, that due to an outbreak of COVID-19 will require operational assistance. The Ohio Rural Water Association is compiling a pool of certified water and wastewater operators who might be available to provide emergency on-site assistance to other Rural Water and/or Wastewater Systems.
The actual details and arrangements would be arranged between the requesting and responding utilities. Our goal is to determine if there are available operators willing to assist if necessary and connect those individuals with nearby communities in an emergency.
If you are in need of an Emergency Operator, please review these Guidelines for the Implementation of Operational Assistance, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
OWEA is also compiling a list of available operators, that can be viewed HERE
