TACNET Mission Statement

Together, the small public water systems technology assistance centers form a network with a common goal: to protect public health, improve water system sustainability, and enhance compliance. The technology assistance centers address the needs of small public water systems, including systems that serve Indian tribes, by applying university resources in the following areas: technology verification; pilot and field testing of innovative technologies; training and technical assistance.

About the TACNET Web site

The TACNET Web site links individual center programs and research project papers to enhance the exchange of information among water treatment professionals. Its centerpiece is a descriptive bibliography of all the projects and tools developed by the TACs, with links to those available from the Internet. In short, the TACNET Web site is a gateway to information from all of the Technical Assistance Centers. For more information, please visit: TACNET: EPA Technical Assistance Center Network.
