In 1991, through the initiative of Iowa Section – American Water Works Association (IAWWA), a Joint Certification Committee was formed with the Iowa Water Environment Association (IAWEA) to review certification rules and procedures and provide advisory service to DNR staff upon request. The committee later expanded its membership to represent training providers, utilities and municipalities. Iowa State University (ISU), Kirkwood Community College, the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities (IAMU) and the Iowa Rural Water Association (IRWA) have joined the committee.
The mission of the Iowa operator certification program is to assure consistent water quality, protect the public health of Iowa citizens, and preserve Iowa’s water resources through the competent management, operation, and maintenance of water and wastewater systems.
