The American Water Works Association (AWWA) today announced the launch of its “Water System Operations” (WSO) on-demand video streaming channel.

The WSO channel offers professional operators access to more than 60 full-length high-quality educational videos on-demand, representing more than 20 hours of training. Users can customize the videos into playlists to suit their facilities’ needs.
