Wastewater Operator Certification Program

Wastewater Advisory Committee

The Water Code authorizes the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) to appoint a group of subject matter experts to assist the State Water Board in carrying out its duties regarding wastewater treatment plant operator certification and training. The State Water Board has maintained an Advisory Committee since 1972. Assembly Bill 2890 added one committee member, a water recycling operator, to represent water recycling plants. Each of the eleven Advisory Committee members is nominated to represent a particular segment of the wastewater treatment field. Each member serves a four-year term. The Advisory Committee generally meets twice a year with additional meetings scheduled as necessary.

The next Advisory Committee Meeting Date: June 5, 2024, 1:00 PM
