The plant operations committee organizes activities that enhance wastewater operators' skills and knowledge. Our committee provides special "operator" activities for the annual conference, including an operations challenge. We plan representative plant tours open to all industry professionals. We organize specialty seminars on plant operations. We also help source 'Plant Profile' articles for inclusion in The Clarifier.
