1) EPA's Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Operation, Maintenance, and Management Training for Tribal Operators and Leaders From June to October 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is sponsoring a series of in-person training workshops for federally recognized tribes and Alaskan Native Villages across the country to help increase participants' skills and knowledge in the operation of wastewater and drinking water treatment systems. The training is intended for water system operators, wastewater system operators, tribal utility managers, tribal council members and leaders involved with water utility management. There is no registration fee for the workshops. There is a cap of 50 participants at each session, and tribes and Alaskan Native Villages that received 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds will be given priority. Travel, hotel, and per diem costs for attendees from tribal reservations may be covered by a participant's local Indian Health Service Area office. Registration is now open for training workshops in Billings, MT, on July 26-28, 2011 and in St. Paul, MN, on August 9-11, 2011. After you register, don't forget to make your hotel reservation. The last day to receive the special group rate is Monday, July 11, 2011, for the Billings workshop and Tuesday, July 12, 2011, for the St. Paul workshop.
