In the heavily regulated world of water and waste water operations, it is a long path of learning, applying and passing examinations to becoming an ORO – Overall Responsible Operator. The ORO is the person responsible for all facets of the water and waste water systems. For Westport, this is Mr. Peter Evans.

In the past year, the Village hired two hard working employees who are learning the trades. Last week, Jamie Day and Brandon Monaghan passed the first big hurdle and now are licensed as Operators-In-Training (OIT).

Please give them a Westport wave or honk to recognize their hard work, in a year where learning and studying has additional challenges.

Well done Jamie and Brandon.
