Massachusetts Wastewater Operator Renewals

Since 2005, NEIWPCC has administered the wastewater license renewals for Massachusetts certified wastewater Operators.

Renewals occur every two years and are due by December 31 of odd-numbered years. The 2019 renewal forms were mailed out the first week of September 2019.  The second notice was mailed out the second week of November.  The renewal fee is $75.

All active Massachusetts wastewater operators are required to provide proof of 20 training contact hours (TCHs) during a given renewal period.

Certification renewal invoices for current operators include TCH credits earned through NEIWPCC, NEWEA, or MAWEA. In cases in which an operator completes training prior to certification, renewal invoices may not accurately reflect the total number of training classes completed.  To receive credit for any class not listed on your individual invoice, submit a hard copy of the certificate of completion along with renewal documentation.

No more than 50% (10 TCHs) of completed training can be safety-relatedAll TCHs submitted for renewal must be pre-approved for Massachusetts Wastewater Operator renewal/activation and have been designated with a  “BC…” approval code (for example, BC-2014-0023).

Approved training questions can be referred to John Murphy at the Massachusetts Board of Certification for Wastewater at (617) 292-5867.
