RATS Water System Operator's Manual
This "WATER SYSTEM OPERATOR'S MANUAL" has been created as a tool to assist Water Systems operators in understanding how to operate and maintain a Public Water System. This book is not intended to be a complete reference manual for water systemstechnical information. Its purpose is to guide the reader through material for each of the major subject areas for water and distribution system operation. It is also intended to be comprehensive in its coverage of the Need-To-Know criteria for water systems operations and maintenance as identified by the Association of Boards of Certification (ABC), Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), and New Mexico Environment Department (NMED). Our belief is that if you understand how a water system is operated and maintained, you will be able to pass a Water Operator certification exam.
