Focus on Change

Take a look back at the 2019 Focus on Change.  We are working on the 2020 Focus on Change now and will have the information available here as soon as it is available.

As we closed the door on the 2019 Focus on Change Sessions, we would like to thank all of those that participated. The classrooms were overflowing with over fourteen hundred attendees. It would not have been possible without the Department of Environmental Protection taking the time out of their busy schedule to give our attendees firsthand information on regulatory changes that could affect their utilities and career.2019 Focus on ChangeEach year, DEP presents awards at the Focus on Change Seminars to domestic wastewater and drinking water facilities around the state that demonstrate excellence in operation, maintenance, innovative treatment, waste reduction, pollution prevention, recycling or other achievements. These awards recognize facilities that demonstrate a special commitment to excellence in management through dedicated professionalism and have an impeccable history of record-keeping compliance.

Thank you for the positive feedback that we received from the attendees. One said that "It is great to see all the other operators and DEP staff under one roof." Another attendee said that the "Presenters were very engaging, energetic, informative, humorous, and fun."
