EPA Webinar on Protecting Drinking Water Sources with DWSRF Set-Asides

On Thursday, December 12th from 2:00 – 3:00 pm (eastern time), EPA will host a webinar entitled, “Protecting Drinking Water Sources with DWSRF Set-Asides,” as part of its DWSRF and Capacity Building in Action webinar series. During the webinar, participants will learn about recent changes in the DWSRF 15% Local Assistance set-aside eligibilities and how Colorado and Nebraska are using their DWSRF set-asides to protect drinking water sources through preventative measures. Colorado will share how they are using set-asides for a variety of source water protection programs including addressing wildfire threats and recovery and Nebraska will share how they are using set-asides to develop planning documents for groundwater source protection that help them access larger funding pools such as nonpoint source grants and Natural Resource Conservation Service programs.
