The Remote Maintenance Worker Program develops the capacity of Rural Alaskans to operate local water and sewer facilities, while safeguarding State and Federal capital investments in utility infrastructure. Our primary services are to:

  • Provide over-the-shoulder training and technical assistance to local water and sewer operators in over 180 rural communities through a circuit rider program.
  • Provide immediate response to emergency situations that threaten or impact community water and sewerage facilities.
  • Provide regional classroom training for area utility operators.
  • Maintain an inventory of emergency repair equipment for loan to communities.
