Certified Water Operator

American Water Services operates numerous water systems for campgrounds, cabins, daycares, restaurants, and various other developments in addition to the community water systems we own throughout North Georgia.

A certified water operator is a person who has met the specific educational and experience requirements set forth by a state or local regulatory agency. These requirements typically include completing a training program, passing an exam, and having a certain amount of experience working in the water industry.

Certification ensures that water operators have the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and effectively operate water treatment plants and distribution systems. This is important because our water operators are responsible for a variety of tasks, including:

  • Testing water quality
  • Maintaining water treatment equipment
  • Monitoring water flow
  • Responding to water emergencies

There are many benefits to using our certified water operators, including:

  • Increased safety: Certified water operators are more likely to follow safety procedures and protocols, which can help to prevent accidents and injuries.
  • Improved water quality: Certified water operators are more likely to be able to identify and correct water quality problems, which can help to ensure that the water is safe to drink and use.
  • Reduced risk of contamination: Certified water operators are more likely to follow proper procedures for handling and storing chemicals, which can help to reduce the risk of contamination.

Many of the businesses and homeowners associations do not want to be in the water business nor do they want to deal with all the different problems that can arise from water system maintenance and operation. In many of these cases we have worked out agreements with these homeowners associations to take over ownership of their water system. We also contract with various associations or companies to handle all regulatory requirements such as maintaining records, water testing, and water treatment.

We also refill and adjust chemicals used in the water treatment systems as well as monitoring power and water meter readings for any signs that something is starting to go wrong with the water system. In many cases we can find a problem and get it fixed before an unexpected water outage occurs. Our water operators are well trained and licensed as certified water operators through the state of Georgia.
