Welcome

Evergreen Rural Water of WA (ERWoW) provides training and technical assistance to water and wastewater systems throughout the state. The staff works directly with systems to solve operational, regulatory, administrative and financial challenges faced by water systems. We are a non-profit organization that is governed by a membership-elected board of directors. Our federal funding allows us to provide free-of-charge, on-site training and technical assistance to water and wastewater systems in Washington State. Our field staff are professionals in the fields of water and wastewater systems operation and maintenance, and source water protection.

Excuse our Typo

In our 3rd Quarterly Brochure that was recently sent out, the training for "Cross Connection Control for Drinking Water, Wastewater and Reclaimed Water" on September 13 is in Tri Cities, NOT Federal Way as is listed in the brochure. We had a typo that was missed. IF you have any questions please contact us. 

Tracer Wire Specification

When an agency modifies, updates or adopts a new section to a traditional standard
specification for construction, there are a few key components in the process that are
vital to ensure success. These key components — the design engineer, the construction
inspector and the contractor — all need to understand what’s changing, proper
implementation of the change and the benefit of the required outcome.
The successful outcome of a tracer wire specification implementation results in accurate
and efficient positive identification locates performed by utility operators, to limit liability
to the utility, its customers and the environment.
