Wow, what a successful year for all 2021 was.  Even with the supply chain issues causing disruptions in our daily routines, we have found ways to please our customers.  For VOWRA our spring trainings and conference were very successful.  We added some new board members and I look forward to having them help us continue to grow.  In 2022 we are adding a couple of spring trainings and changing up some of our normal content to try and make classes more real-world everyday education, and our conference will be back at the Hotel Roanoke, this fall.  With the Virginia legislative season upon us please stay tuned to the website where we will keep up to date information on any legislation that will have an effect on our industry.  As always thank you for supporting VOWRA and I look forward to a strong successful 2022.   If you have questions or ideas for VOWRA please feel free to contact us at

Real Estate Inspections Bill
Thank you Delegate Keith Hodges for sponsoring this bill.  It has been a long time coming, and VOWRA started working on the process five years ago with our training power point presentations to Realtors on what we believe should constitute a proper inspection of onsite sewage treatment systems for home sale.  Without the Realtor Associations being onboard, this Bill as proposed would never pass ... We have some wordsmithing to do yet in committee, but our Legislative Committee of Curtis Moore and Trapper Davis are on top of it.
