California Rural Water Association in partnership with Mojave Water Agency (MWA) and in support of the Integrated Regional Water Management Plan is offering a series of free trainings designed to enhance your knowledge of the water industry. These no-cost workshops are beneficial for Water Operators and System Managers of Private, Public and Tribal Systems.

This course highlights the importance of generators on our water distribution systems.

This includes but is not limited to the following personnel: operators, mechanics, electricians, maintenance managers, site managers, superintendents, or other management staff responsible for ensuring their generator not only starts when it’s needed but also adheres to all local and state requirements.
