WaterRF Resiliency Webinar in Mid-August

Would you like more information on how water systems prepare (or are supposed to prepare) for emergencies?  On Thursday, August 17th at 3 PM EDT, the Water Research Foundation is hosting a webinar on water system resiliency.
While there is a lot of guidance about how to plan for emergencies, there hasn’t been a summary of what water systems are actually doing.  This webcast will discuss the findings of Innovative Preparedness and Response Practices to Support Water System Resilience (#4601).  Participants will learn about practices in other sectors that could be used in the water sector, a variety of fundamentals and good practices in use at utilities, as well as some innovative practices to consider.  The project findings were gathered through surveys and interviews of utilities, state primacy agencies, public health agencies, and emergency management agency staff.  This Webcast is designed to provide participants with a variety of ideas (some easy and some more challenging) to better support all hazards resiliency at their water system.  Register for the webcast here.
ASDWA has been working with WRF to increase the use of their suite of resources by ASDWA’s members and their staff.  The Water Research Foundation (WRF) is a not-for-profit research cooperative that advances the science of water to protect public health and the environment.  WRF has a long-established and strong relationship with federal and state regulators and departments that allow for collaboration on projects and the co-development of research agendas.  As an employee of a state, you can have free access to all WRF materials, including the Website, Webcasts, and newsletters.  Please click on the link below and fill out the form to begin receiving the benefits of WRF research.  Note: State regulators aren’t specifically mentioned on this page but filling out this form will still provide you with free access.
