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.
