Self-evaluation toolkit for water systems. (Products & Services).
The National Drinking Water Clearinghouse (NDWC) is offering "Staying Ahead of the Curve: How Well Do You Know Your Water System?," a practical self-assessment toolkit created for community water systems by the Maryland Center for Environmental Training (MCET) and funded by U.S. EPA.
The toolkit helps users realize the following objectives: to measure the technical, managerial, and financial strength of the system; to develop capital, operation, and maintenance-planning strategies and budgeting expertise; and to proactively comply with regulatory requirements.
The toolkit includes
* a questionnaire divided into sections for evaluating general facility and technical information, managerial information, and financial information;
* a handbook designed to help local officials understand the legal and technical requirements for treatment, storage, and distribution of drinking water and for collection, treatment, and storage of wastewater;
* a 28-minute video describing a water system self-evaluation, plus interviews with leading water industry experts, regulators, operators, and town administrators; and
* an electronic copy of the self-evaluation questionnaire on a disk. Call NDWC for the "Staying Ahead of the Curve" toolkit at (800) 624-8301, or e-mail email@example.com, and ask for item number DWPKMG29.
