CCR Reminder – July 1st Deadline Approaching

Posted By IAMU, Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The Consumer Confidence Report is required to be distributed by July 1st by all community public water supply systems (CWS).  Even if a system uses the template sent by DNR in March, a copy of what was actually distributed to the consumers must be submitted to DNR by July 1st.  There are still about 529 reports (almost 50%) not submitted with a week to go before the deadline.

Send a copy of the report to DNR by July 1st.  The certification must be sent to DNR after you’ve completed the distribution, no later than October 1, 2019, as directed in the letter sent to each CWS in March 2019. Many systems submit the copy of the report and the certification at the same time to DNR, before July 1st.

If a CWS needs an electronic copy of the CCR and/or Certification Form, please send your request to  This is an email address that all of our environmental specialists can receive.

To submit the copy of the distributed CCR and certification by .pdf, send it to the email address.

To submit the copy of the distributed CCR and certification by fax, send it to this number 515/725-8202, to the attention of Water Supply Operations.

Any questions, contact the person listed in your operation permit.

IAMU Electric Utility System Operation Short Course - Registration Open!

Posted By IAMU, Wednesday, June 12, 2019

IAMU is once again offering the Electric Utility System Operation Short Course (EUSO) presented by Skip Collier of Professional Training Systems, Inc.


Skip is highly regarded and has an extensive background in electric utility design, construction, maintenance and operation.


EUSO Short Course:  July 23 – 25

The EUSO Short Course is designed for any employee whose job performance will benefit from a basic understanding of the operations side of the business.  This includes those from legal, rates, engineering, purchasing, computer application, marketing, customer service, inventory control, finance, accounting, safety, risk analysis as well as those from generating plants.  One goal for this class is to have students leave with the ability to easily identify all of the electrical equipment they see in a substation as they walk by, along with all the equipment found on the poles in a residential area.  Non-electrical engineers are often at a disadvantage in the electric utility environment due to a lack of familiarity with technical issues.  The better you understand the utility’s product – electrical energy – and how it is created and distributed, the better you can serve the utility and your customers.  This course assumes no electrical background, and builds on the basics to provide a comprehensive understanding of the equipment and operations.


*Line Maintainer apprentices will receive 21 Basic OJT hours for taking the EUSO Course.*


Registration fees for the course are below.


(*If you are planning on sending more than one participant from your organization, please make sure to share this with multiple departments so that you qualify for the reduced cost with the initial registration.)

  • EUSO Course - $950 for a single registrant OR $850 each for two or more participants from the same utility/organization
