  • Each workstation will have a clear how-to guide on filling in the CCR template or update your previous CCR
  • DDW will provide the required data that has been submitted during the past year
  • DDW & RWAU personnel will be onsite to provide CCR instruction and help you through the report completion
  • DDW will provide you with electronic and hard copies of the LAST CCR they have on record for you
  • Walk-ins will be allowed as possible, but must bring their own laptop with them

Hotel Accommodations

All reservations are handled directly with the hotel. There are many hotels to choose from in the St. George area. The hotels listed here have offered our attendees a discounted rate.  Unless otherwise noted, when making your reservations with these hotels, mention you are with the Rural Water conference to get the specialty rate. And remember, hotels fill up quickly down there and most discounted rates expire a month before the Conference so make your reservations early!

 PLEASE NOTE: Rural Water is not in any way a party to hotel rates or accommodations. We have simply asked these hotels to give our attendees a discounted rate and they have agreed to do so. All hotel arrangements, rates and policies are at the discretion of the hotels themselves, and reservations, rates and agreements are between the hotel and the guest staying with them.
