Gregory D. Pardieck of Seymour attended the annual spring conference of the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water on March 16 and 17 at French Lick Resort.
The conference is for the more than 700 water and wastewater utility professionals, vendors and supporters from across the state.
Pardieck is the operator of Natural Public Supply Inc., which provides drinking water through 620 customers at Village Green Mobile Home Park at 825 S. O’Brien St. in Seymour, according to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management drinking water division.
Water and wastewater specialists must maintain their licenses through the state by obtaining continuing education to renew their certification every couple of years, according to a news release from the alliance. Those attending the conference may obtain up to 10 hours of continuing education for water and wastewater operator certification licenses.
The courses provided at the conference help operators stay up to date on regulations, current industry trends and training specific to their area of expertise. They also have the chance to network with their peers and industry experts to discuss similar problems and solutions.
The alliance is a nonprofit membership association of more than 850 water and wastewater systems and related professionals.
