About Us

UF/TREEO was created to provide continuing education for water and wastewater operators so they could operate their plants in compliance with federal and state regulations.  UF has a long history of training water and wastewater operators beginning in the 1940’s with Dr. A. P. Black whose name graces one of the engineering buildings on the UF campus.

UF/TREEO expanded its course offerings as new environmental legislation was passed in the 1980s and 1990s to include Asbestos Abatement, Solid Waste, HAZWOPER, and RCRA training. Several years ago UF/TREEO began providing assistance to utilities wishing to improve operations and costs by implementing an Environmental Management System.

Since 2005 UF/TREEO has been the administrator for Florida Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (FLAWARN) that provides assistance to utilities during hurricanes and other emergencies.
