Online registration has closed for the 2019 Public Drinking Water Conference and waitlist.

You may register as a walk-in.  We have notified all registered attendees that they must check in to the conference by 9:00 am on Thursday, August 8th or notify us that they will be late.  If they do not do either of those actions, they will lose their spot and we will allow walk-ins to register. You can try that route. In the past, we have been able to accommodate all walk-ins. However, there is no guarantee that you will be able to participate. Walk-ins arrive in the conference hotel lobby on Thursday, August 8 for a 7:15 AM sign-up (please note some arrive much earlier than that).

The 2019 Public Drinking Water Conference is a FREE, two-day seminar designed to provide information relevant to public drinking water system operators and managers.

TCEQ Water Supply Division representatives will give presentations on a wide variety of topics including drinking water regulations, upcoming rules, operations, cyber security, water loss, new technology, and much more.

Staff from the TCEQ Water Supply Division will also be available to meet on an individual basis with water system operators and water system managers. If you are a water system operator or manager this conference is a must. This conference has been approved for 12 credit hours to be awarded to public water system operators licensed in the State of Texas who complete the approved training.  If you attend only one conference this year, make it the TCEQ 2019 Public Drinking Water Conference!
