New Guidelines for Direct Responsible Charge (DRC)

faviconThe board has recently approved changes to direct responsible charge (DRC) which, when implemented will:

  • Enable more than one Operator at a time to earn DRC work experience, and encourage facilities/systems to make these opportunities available;
  • Enable Level 1 Operators to begin accumulating DRC work experience (currently restricted to Levels II, III and IV); and
  • Require Operators of water distribution or wastewater collection systems to have DRC work experience to apply for Level III and IV operator certification.
