Check Up Program for Small Systems (CUPSS) is an EPA tool for small communities seeking help with managing the assests and finances of their small drinking water and wastewater systems. We are interested to learn about your experiences using the program.
If you are currently using this program, or have used it in the past, please contact Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your experience.
Asset Management Training Recap
Thanks to all who joined Melissa Young (EFC) and Phil Smith (NYS DEC) for the Water Asset Management Training this month in Rochester.
If you weren't able to join us, here is a recap: Melissa began with an explanation of the CUPSS tool (see above) as a way to measure and monitor water systems. Following her presentation, a 15-minute overview of Liquid Assets was shown, a documentary on the history and current status of water infrastructure in the United States. After a delicious Italian dinner, the group heard from Phil Smith who explained the Top 10 key steps to managing water assets, while meeting DEC compliance standards.
Thanks to all the participants who engaged in lively and informative discussions at this event!
