KDHE Certifies Water and Wastewater Treatment Operators

TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) Bureau of Water has certified 64 water treatment operators and 63 wastewater treatment operators from January to August. These operators represent community and public water supply facilities across the state.

Kansas has more than 1,000 community and public water supply facilities that require a certified operator. Individuals who operate water treatment plants must meet minimum training standards to assure water is properly treated so it is safe to drink. Wastewater treatment plant operators must also be trained so they can operate wastewater treatment systems and prevent the release of excessive pollutants.

“These trained water and wastewater treatment operators play a significant role in protecting public health and the environment,” said KDHE Secretary Robert Moser, MD. “I commend the dedication these Kansans have displayed in their efforts to protect our waters.”
