RCAP on the Radio

ASDWA has learned that our RCAP partners are going “live!”  They have decided to reach out via community radio to encourage interest in taking up water and wastewater operations as a profession.  The kick off program will broadcast on Thursday, June 30 from 9-9:30AM (Mountain) on KGNU community radio.  Read below for more information from Joy Barrett, the RCAP  Director for Training and Technical Services…

“I’m excited to let you know that there will be a radio program dedicated to the issue of water and wastewater operations professions.  We’ll cover background, including protection of public health and the environment, workforce shortages, opportunities, a typical day, how people get skills and credentials, and training and certification resources.  Speakers will include Lori Moore of CDPHE, Joe Cowan of City of Boulder, and Laura Travis of RCAP.

The program will be broadcast live this coming Thursday, June 30, 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. MDT, on KGNU.  You can catch us by tuning in to 88.5 fm, 1390 am, or www.kgnu.org.  If you miss the program but want to hear it, go to the KGNU web site where you can find the program in the archives for at least a couple of weeks.”

Joy, in a separate message, invited all RCAP managers and trainers to listen in via the web and to consider hosting similar broadcasts on community media in their own areas.   Joy also highlighted that “…one of the points we’ll be stressing is that water and wastewater professions are the ultimate green job!”

So, if you have time on Thursday morning, check out RCAP on the Radio – and consider whether this could be a viable outreach option for your state as well!  Meanwhile, CONGRATS to the RCAP folks for thinking outside the box to share the positive message about the water and wastewater operator profession!
