What are Vouchers?
The department provides funding to help operators who work for qualifying systems to obtain and renew their certifications. The department mails voucher packets to eligible water and wastewater systems each year in January. Vouchers expire Dec. 31 each year and may be used as payment for drinking water operator certification examinations, renewals and voucher-approved water training.
Drinking Water Operator Training Voucher Program
Eligible systems serve populations of 3,300 or less and are department-classified as either community systems or non-transient non-community systems. If you have questions, contact the Operator Certification Section at 800-361-4827 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wastewater Treatment Operator Training Voucher Program
Eligible wastewater treatment facilities are those with domestic wastewater discharges of less than 1.0 million gallons/day flow and state regulations require operation by a certified operator.
