TWUA – 101-Years Strong

The 101st Annual School was a great success. Attendance numbers for Annual School were just over 460 students and 80 vendor booths or 184+ individual vendor representatives. Norma Clark and Tom Ezell volunteer and help the association take care of the vendor aspects of Annual School, and they do a great job, and our thanks go to them. The exhibit hall looked great, and we received great feedback from all participants. Corpus is a great partner and a great place to hold our Annual Convention. To all those who were a part of the 101st Annual School, thank you for your support and participation. To all those who received awards, congratulations on your accomplishments. To all the instructors and volunteers who assisted – thank you.

The names Linda Saladino and Sarita Nazareth are no doubt familiar to those in the water and wastewater industry who have had questions regarding operator testing, licensing, eligibility, or training approval. These ladies have officially retired retired (Linda 15 + years) and resigned (Sarita 10+ years) from TCEQ. GOODBYE TENSION AND HELLO PENSION!

We wish to thank Linda and Sarita for their efforts in making operator licensing and related curriculum reflective of the job tasks that operators perform and the relationship of these critical tasks to health and safety of the public and protecting the environment. You provided a great example and were truly passionate about maintaining standards and ethics. It has been a pleasure working with you both.

On behalf of TWUA, we wish you a happy and healthy retirement.

I am seeking your thoughts, suggestions, and input as it relates to involving those new to the water and wastewater profession in the operator licensing process.


Gov. Greg Abbott says he can keep plumbing board alive without special session
By Alanna Autler | CBS 11 NEWS

Gov. Greg Abbott claimed Tuesday (6/4/2019) he can keep Texas' plumbing board alive without calling a special legislative session, as he reassured plumbers who were worried their profession will no longer be subject to state regulations.


Texas plumbing board and laws abolished after legislative strife

The House failed to pass legislation that would have extended the agency's existence.
