On Wednesday, September 5th, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm (eastern), ASDWA will host a webinar with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) entitled, “Understanding Chemical and Microbial Contaminants in Drinking Water:  Raw, Treated, and Tap Water.” The webinar will be presented in three segments to address key issues and questions of drinking water quality. The segments include:

  • The USGS groundwater quality assessments in 11 principal drinking water aquifers across the US.
  • The EPA and USGS collaborative effort to provide a more robust dataset on a wide range of chemical and microbial contaminants present in source and treated waters, along with a case example from a participating water utility in Massachusetts.
  • The USGS partnership effort to quantify tap water exposure pathways in public and private water supplies.
