OTCO Class A Wastewater Course (For STS Renewals)

The objective in using this Ohio EPA Class A Training Manual course to to educate individuals on the basics of wastewater treatment from a small system perspective or to borrow a phrase from Dr. John Buchanon: "Small Pipe People". Being a 'Big Pipe Person" since 1976 and a Class III Wastewater Operator since 1987, I can easily take for granted the knowledge one can acquire regarding the efforts to protect our natural, renewal resource: Water let us not forget we are to protect public's health. This particular manual was a labor of love from the Ohio EPA's Compliance Assistance Unit also know as the USEPA Region V, 104g training group. I thank the Ohio EPA for supporting their efforts since the 1980's. I particular want to recognized one of the humble unsung heroes of our profession Mr. Keith Kroeger.

The Compliance Assistance Program seldom works without total commitment from community officials. In order to achieve success, we need the same level of commitment from everyone involved: village administrators, superintendents, plant operators, etc.
