EPA Adds Additional UCMR4-SDWARS Webinar for Nov. 6

This post was originally published on this site

Due to excessive demand, EPA has added another offering of its webinar to prepare water systems for using the Safe Drinking Water Accession and Review System (SDWARS) for handling Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR4) data.

The two sessions will both be held on November 6, 2017. The content of the webinars will be the same so there is no need to attend both sessions.

  • The first session is from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).
  • The second session is from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).

If you are already registered and would like to attend the 9:00 a.m. session you do not need to take any additional actions. Simply use the confirmation email you have already received from GoToWebinar and join at 9:00 a.m.(Eastern Time). Those who have not registered for either session can register at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7373883911473632259.

The session for Laboratories will still be held on November 8, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). Those who wish to participate can register at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2916249367702326787.

Lines are limited and are on a first come, first served basis. There are currently more registrants than available lines for the Public Water System sessions. EPA highly encourages registrants to view the webinar from conference rooms and share log-ins when possible. The slides will be made available before the webinar, and the slides and a recording of the webinar will be available for viewing online after the webinars for those who are unable to participate in either session.

States that will be active in UCMR4 implementation may wish to view the webinars to become familiar with the tool and how systems and laboratories will interact with it.  States may also sign up for SDWARS to have early access to UCMR4 data.  States with questions or interested in a SDWARS account should email UCMR_Sampling_Coordinator@epa.gov.  (note: email address includes underscores that are not apparent when shown as a hyperlink).
