RCAP and Small Systems Can be a Winning Team
Abstract:The environmental regulatory community continues to clean up our waterways by requiring ever smaller communities to construct and operate wastewater collection and treatment systems. Many of these systems serve less than 100 homes, making affordability and management very difficult. In Ohio, the regulatory agency, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA), has realized this and has contracted with the Ohio Rural Community Assistance Program (Ohio RCAP) to provide training to the leaders (decision makers) of small communities and systems on how to properly manage and operate their systems for efficiency and long term stability. The specific training Ohio RCAP provides in Ohio, coupled with RCAP's more indepth and on-site technical assistance to communities will be detailed in this session and RCAP's role as a coach to small communities will be explained.
