Wastewater Operator Draft Fee Schedule

March 31, 2021 - May 15, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

We invite comments on the Wastewater Operator Certification Program Draft Fee Schedule.

By law, Ecology must fund the Wastewater Operator Certification (OpCert) Program with fees and publish an updated draft fee schedule every other year. The current fee schedule was published in WAC 173-230-240. Based on the estimated administrative costs of the OpCert program and the projected account balance, we propose to maintain wastewater operator certification fees at their current level.

View the draft fee schedule for more information. 

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) serve an essential function to protect public health and the environment, including Washington's rivers, lakes, streams, and Puget Sound. The certification of wastewater treatment plant operators helps make sure they are knowledgeable, and that WWTPs are properly operated and maintained.  Learn more about the OpCert program
