Our Mission: Provide small water systems with opportunities that
benefit their systems.
The Small System committee is currently reaching out to all small water systems in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
Our committee is growing! If you are interested in joining our small systems committee please feel free to contact us.
Our next Small System Committee Meeting will be in Boise, ID at the section conference.
Training Opportunities for Small Systems

small systems, AWWA is offering two free eLearning courses that can be
accessed from any computer with an internet connection, anytime of day or
Small systems needing more in-depth help, may be eligible for free one
on one technical, financial, and managerial assistance from EFCN and RCAP.
- Whether it is help setting
rates, creating an asset management plan, identifying sources of
funding or lowering energy use or water loss, EFCN can provide
expertise and guidance. Visit EFCN to fill out a request for assistance.
- RCAP will carry out compliance-focused
technical assistance projects in priority systems throughout the U.S.,
including territories. In addition, RCAP’s Technical Resource Team
will provide subject matter support to these projects, and RCAP will

systems through its Distance Assistance initiative. To request
