A&A’s R.A. “Chip” Worley, PE will be presenting at the Establishing a Successful and Sustainable Waterworks (ESSW) program at the Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke, VA on September 27th. In the present economic climate, it is critical that waterworks personnel understand and implement a business plan that allows for an analysis of needs, budget development, and capital improvements. The ESSW course is a four day event hosted by Virginia Tech and the Virginia Department of Health. The program will have multiple presentations and materials. Chip will be presenting three topics: “Water Audits and Leak Detection”, “Preparing Preliminary Engineering Reports”, and his favorite topic to discuss, “Estimating the Cost of the Project”.
