Cross connection contamination events are believed to have caused more waterborne disease outbreaks in the United States than any other reported factor. Understanding what a cross connection is and the methods to prevent them from occurring are the foundations for a successful cross connection control program. This half day remote class is a good overview of cross connection control for new operators.

 Learning Objectives:

 Understand what a cross connection is;
 Become familiar with the different types of cross connection control devices;
 Learn the requirements of MassDEP’s cross connection regulations.

 

 This course is approved for 2 TCHs (Training Contact Hours) for Massachusetts Water Operators.
It will be taught using the Zoom platform.  Participants will need to have a reliable highspeed internet connection and computer device with both video and audio capability.
