How to Help with Hazard Mitigation

ASDWA and EPA’s Water Security Division are teaming up to present a webinar that will consider how state primacy agencies can work with both their state hazard mitigation offices and their utilities to promote, fund, and implement hazard mitigation projects.
DATE:          Thursday, September 15, 2016
TIME:           1:00-2:30 PM (eastern)
REGISTER:   https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/615897312349016579
The webinar will include examples of successful state agency coordination that results in utilities implementing appropriate mitigation measures.  This will also be states’ first opportunity to view a demonstration of EPA’s newly released tool, Hazard Mitigation for Natural Disasters: A Starter Guide for Water and Wastewater Utilities.  EPA has just made a downloadable version of the Guide available at:  https://www.epa.gov/waterutilityresponse/hazard-mitigation-natural-disasters.
The target audience and discussion focus for this event is state drinking water programs.  Other events are planned to share these materials with other members of the water community.  For more information, please see the attached flyer.
