Drinking Water Operator Certification

Water Operator Certification Program

Nevada’s Drinking Water Operator Certification Program protects public health and the environment by having certified drinking water operators in direct responsible charge of drinking water treatment plants and water distribution systems. Trained and certified operators are necessary to ensure that public water systems are managed in a manner that fully protects public health and the environment. These persons must obtain a fully certified operator certificate issued by the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection.

Nevada Revised Statutes 445A.875 through 445A.880 are the rules that govern the public water system operator certification program. The implementation and enforcement of the regulations governing this program falls under the authority of NDEP's Bureau of Safe Drinking Water.
