Tech Teams

Does your community have an infrastructure improvement project that needs to happen, but you aren’t sure how to proceed? Tech team meetings are a resource to get you headed in the right direction. A tech team meeting is a get-together between community representatives and program staff. The goal is to collaborate and solve infrastructure problems. Depending on your community’s current needs, various opportunities will be available. Tech Teams assist with:

• Understanding and prioritizing your overall infrastructure needs.
• Developing specific infrastructure projects.
• Developing funding strategies for specific infrastructure projects.

2020 Training Webinars

With COVID-19 prohibiting public meetings, the Public Works Board had to cancel their in-person regional training events this year. Instead, the Board and its partner agencies offered a series of three training webinars. If you were unable to attend, or just want to revisit the presentations, the recorded sessions are available below.

2019 Regional Training – Recap

The Public Works Board presented four free training events across the state in April and May. Participants learned how asset management and value planning work together to create projects that fit their community. Local presenters also provided overviews of their asset management programs and their jurisdiction’s application of value planning.

The training events were held in Silverdale, Pasco, Longview, and Okanogan. Between the four training events:

• 95 community representatives attended.
• 24 of Washington’s 39 counties were represented.
• 46 participants received CEUs for water or wastewater.
• 41 city staff attended.
• 20 public or private water/sewer district staff attended.
• 10 public utility district staff attended.
• 8 county staff participated.

The Public Works Board would like to thank all of those involved in making these training events a success, especially those who took time from their regular job duties to attend. We would also like to thank the staff from our partner agencies at the Department of Health and the Department of Ecology.

PWB Regional Training participants were so involved in their asset management exercise, they continued working through their break.
