Water Systems Council Announces Upcoming Dates for Water Systems

Primer & Refresher

WASHINGTON, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Water Systems Council,

the only national, nonprofit organization solely focused on household

wells and small water well systems, announced today that it will

conduct sessions of its Water Systems Primer and Refresher program at

the South Atlantic Jubilee in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on July 25, 2014 and

at the NGWA Expo in Las Vegas on Nov. 9, 2014.

WSC's Water Systems Primer and Refresher is a continuing education and

training program that was introduced at the 2013 NGWA Expo, in

collaboration with the National Ground Water Association. The one-day

class provides instruction on water well fundamentals; pumps; service;

components; water quality assurance; electrical safety, controls, and

regulations; community well systems, shared wells, and groundwater

heat pumps; and solar power systems.

The training is conducted by WSC member company representatives from

Xylem, Inc.; Franklin Electric Company, Inc.; Amtrol, Inc.; Flexcon

Industries; 2M Company; Grundfos Pumps Corporation; Pacific Northwest

Sales Company; and Pentair.

WSC introduced the new continuing education program at the 2013 NGWA

Expo last December and completed its second sold-out session at the

Pacific Northwest Expo in Portland, OR, on March 29, 2014. The cost

is $50 per person; attendees receive .575 CEUs or 5.75 CEPs as well as

a copy of the WSC Water Systems Handbook 12th Edition (a $75 value).

"The Water Systems Primer & Refresher provides a great opportunity for

participants to receive invaluable training from the manufacturers of

the products they use on the job every day," said Margaret Martens,

WSC executive director. "Our last session in March was completely

sold out, which indicates a demand for this type of training that WSC

is proud to provide the water well industry."

Other organizations or associations interested in hosting a Water

Systems Primer & Refresher training program should contact Martens at

202-625-4387 or via email.

The Water Systems Council (WSC) is the only national, nonprofit

organization solely focused on household wells and small water well

systems. WSC is committed to ensuring that Americans who get their

water from household private wells have safe, reliable drinking water

and to protecting our nation's groundwater resources. For more
