The Training Advisory Committee (TAC), comprised of representatives of the consortium’s organizations, steers the direction of the Massachusetts wastewater operator training program.

The following organizations have representatives on the TAC:

  • New England Water Environment Association (NEWEA)
  • Massachusetts Water Environment Association (MAWEA)
  • Massachusetts Rural Water Association (MassRWA)
