Project Prologue

Underground Wastewater

June 2001 Land development activities within the State cast a spot light on decentralized systems program managed by the Division of Water Quality.  This fact necessitated skilled designers, operators, inspectors and maintenance personnel for a successful decentralized program.  In recognition of this need, the Legislature adopted an onsite professional certification program and funded a training center at the Utah State University,

Logan in 2001.
In less than six months, the Utah Water Quality Board adopted rules for the certification and certified as many as 300 professionals within a short time frame of four months.
