The Onsite Wastewater Mega-Conference is in full swing! You may be reading this just before or during the event (Oct. 13-16), and we want to give a shoutout to all our members in attendance and vendors that come to the conference. This year the National Association of Wastewater Technicians focused on septage management, giving both private companies and municipalities options for dealing with the septage they pump. This is going to be valuable information moving forward as our previous disposal options are less available.

Don’t forget NAWT scholarships

Applications for the William Hapchuk Memorial Scholarships are due by Jan. 15, 2020. Further information and necessary forms are on the NAWT website. We encourage all members or anyone who has college-age students who qualify to please have them apply for these prestigious scholarships. We offer two scholarships each year for students enrolled in an onsite-related field.

Also, if you or your company is interested in supporting the scholarship fund, please contact the office and they will help you out with your generous donation. The youth are our future, and we need to encourage them to take an interest in our industry. It is an exciting industry that continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

See us at the WWETT Show

As we gear up for the 2020 Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) Show, remember to look at the NAWT sessions. We are going to be rolling out new concepts, ideas and protocols for our installers. Dave Gustafson and Dan Wheeler will be taking us through what an installer needs to know about design, soils and the “art of installations.” As the industry grows and our sites become smaller and more “interesting” to work with, it’s important that installers are fully prepared for the challenges they will meet.

And of course, don’t forget — especially if you have not been through the NAWT Inspector Training course recently — we will be bringing our recently updated course back to the WWETT Show in the one-day format that only Gustafson — with his experience and flair for presentation — can deliver. Register early to take advantage of the reduced rate for the course.

If you have questions or need to renew any NAWT certificates (installer, operation and maintenance, designer, and inspector), this will be an opportunity to do that and see changes made to the training. This course will be held on the Monday prior to the opening of the WWETT Show. Check the NAWT website or call the office for more information.

Upgraded website

The office has been working diligently for the membership. The database has been revamped, and the links to the website are complete. With the new database and website links, we will be notifying you as your renewal date for certifications approaches. You may also submit CEU work you have completed to the database when it occurs and pay online for your renewal when you are due. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the office.
