  • Per the approved schedule for special meetings for drafting changes to the Rules and Regulations of Operators of Wastewater Treatment Facilities: The item to be discussed at this meeting will be the definition and understanding of Direct Responsible Charge. Note that any changes to this definition would impact existing definitions of Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent, etc., as well as other areas of the regulations. Note: A recurring theme/question by Board members and throughout the industry is whether Direct Responsible Charge should be defined as managing operations staff (as it is currently) or solely overseeing a shift operation, such as a single operator on a third shift (as some have proposed). Note: This discussion may take more than one meeting.
