Location:  Oklahoma City, Okla., and Albuquerque, N.M.  

From May 2 through 4, EPA will be sponsoring a training workshop in Oklahoma City, Okla., for federally- recognized tribes and Alaskan Native Villages to help increase participants’ skills and knowledge in how to better operate and manage wastewater and drinking water systems. The training is intended for water system operators, wastewater system operators, tribal utility managers, tribal council members and leaders involved with water utility management.  There is no registration fee for the workshop, but Tribes and Alaskan Native Villages that received American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds will be given registration priority.
