We would like to welcome two new employees to our team. Sean McCarthy has joined NYRWA as a Wastewater Trainer/Technician and will be providing training and technical assistance to our valued wastewater systems in central and western NY. Sean comes with a wealth of experience and training in both the water and wastewater industries. Sean can be reached at

We also recently welcomed Mary Theresa Julien, or MJ as she likes to be called, as our new Source Water Protection Specialist. MJ has a well-rounded background of both education and experience that make her well-suited to assist communities in the development of their Source Water Protection Plans. She has already met and coordinated with several communities who have requested assistance with the development and implementation of their plans. If you have questions or would like to schedule with MJ, please email her at

We are excited to have both Sean and MJ join our team and look forward to their future success within our association!

As many of you are aware, we retired our home study initial certification course platform effective December 30, 2022.

In an effort to continue to serve our membership, our staff worked diligently to develop initial certification courses for both Grade C & D water operation specialists. The new classroom-based courses are approved by the NYS Department of Health, Bureau of Water Supply Protection, and meet the most current standards as identified in the model curriculum. Our thanks to the NYSDOH personnel for their expedient yet thorough review and approval of our course materials.

To our members…we appreciate your patience and understanding as we completed this transition. We have a Grade D course already scheduled and plan to offer (2) more courses in 2023 that will accept both Grade C & D students. Please keep an eye on our website training page for more information
