Save the Date for ASDWA’s Upcoming Webinar on Source Water-Capacity Development Collaboration

Please save the date for the following webinar about ways to collaborate, based on practical state experiences, between source water protection and capacity development programs:

Title: Capacity Development and Source Water Protection Collaboration
Date: Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET)

  • Purpose: This webinar will explore opportunities for state drinking water capacity development and source water protection program coordinators to work together to help their water systems achieve compliance and prevent MCL exceedances.
  • Target Audience: State and EPA Regional capacity development and source water protection coordinators, technical assistance providers, and any other interested stakeholders are encouraged to attend. Registration is free and open to anyone who wishes to attend.
  • What you will learn: Participants will learn how two states are collaborating to use both their source water protection and capacity development programs to benefit small water systems. Source water protection can be a viable option for: enhanced compliance; increased resiliency; cost savings from monitoring waivers and filtration variances; and for potentially offsetting additional treatment costs for particular contaminants or problems with the water supply. Source water protection is also a key component of the multi-barrier approach to public health protection.
