Onsite Wastewater System (OWS) Training

Contact: Terri Vroman, Environmental Health at 970-328-8763 or terri.vroman@eaglecounty.us

EPA Region 8 has been listening to the member states' requests for additional training. They obtained a grant to cover the costs of bringing experienced trainers to Colorado and the other states.  We are privileged to have trainers from Utah State University and Utah’s OWS Training Center to bring training tailored for Colorado. The EPA grant covers the costs of the training, so there is no registration fee. There will be two different courses and the dates and locations are as follows:
