DEQ Presentations

Wyoming’s certified operators protect public health by providing safe drinking water.  They protect the environment by cleaning up our wastewater before releasing it.  

They also protect the investment Wyoming’s taxpayers have made in our water and wastewater infrastructure by operating facilities correctly.  The Wyoming Operator Certification Program ensures that operators obtain the correct training to become certified, keep their certifications current, and also requires that facilities are operated by correctly certified operators.
