Collection & Distribution Schools

The NC AWWA-WEA Collection & Distribution School committee organizes 3 Collection & Distribution Schools each year.

   

Most Collection & Distribution schools will also offer courses for credit in The Academy for Water Professional Development.

 

IMPORTANT BOOKSTORE UPDATE

NC AWWA-WEA is no longer selling the 4th Edition of the Water Transmission & Distribution textbook or workbook. As of March 1, 2017 we are selling the WSO Water Distribution, Grades 1 & 2 (1st edition) and WSO Water Distribution, Grades 3 & 4 (1st edition). The A, B, & C Distribution NTK has been updated to reference the new textbooks mentioned above, and the previous textbook (Water Transmission & Distribution Textbook - 4th edition).
