The New Hampshire Water Works Operator Certification Program requires all community and non-community/non-transient public water systems in New Hampshire to be under the responsible charge of a primary certified drinking water system operator. Examples are nursing homes, mobile home parks.

A public water system represents a significant lifelong investment for any community, demanding that operators be fully trained and certified. This program provides assurance that water works operators have basic knowledge and understanding to provide a safe, adequate, and reliable supply of water to their customers.

The primary operator is responsible for all operational aspects and for overseeing system maintenance. According to the New Hampshire DES, the operational duties of a primary water system operator are:

  • Conduct routine inspections of the water system
