ASDWA Partners with EPA for Another Successful Virtual Drinking Water Workshop

This week concluded the 18th Annual EPA Drinking Water Workshop, which was held virtually for the second time during the pandemic. The Workshop was a resounding success, boasting over 3,000 attendees, with attendance from all 50 states, 4 territories, DC, 34 tribal nations/councils, and 9 Canadian provinces. ASDWA staff moderated and lead several breakout group discussions during the conference, with topics ranging from point-of-use and SDWA compliance to distribution system best practices.

This year’s Workshop covered multiple hot topics in the water sector including discussions on PFAS, lead, and DBPs. The Workshop also hosted several breakout groups for primacy agencies that allowed attendees to share their state experiences on a variety of topics, such as lead testing in schools and child care facilities, emergency preparedness, and water reuse.

ASDWA commends EPA and the Planning Committee on another successful Workshop and looks forward to partnering on future workshops. To view the workshop agenda and presentation summaries, click here.
