The Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA) is pleased to announce a free webinar entitled, “USGS drinking-water related research, data, and tools.” This is the first webinar in a series of planned ASDWA talks by USGS scientists. This webinar will provide a broad overview of high-visibility efforts related to monitoring, data, modeling, tools, and products from the USGS National Water Quality Program and the Toxic Substances Hydrology and Contaminant Biology Programs. The featured speakers will highlight topics such as evaluating the water-quality status of the Nation’s streams and groundwater, evaluating trends or changes in the status over time, applying advanced laboratory methods and field investigations to understand factors that affect water quality, and forecasting future water-quality conditions. Speakers will also briefly highlight USGS exposure-related work such as quantifying contaminant exposures to the public in drinking water pathways, the effects of infrastructure on tap water chemistry and public exposures, and working with human-health experts to explore associations among drinking water exposures and human-health outcomes. This presentation will demonstrate how the USGS interacts with States, relevance to drinking-water policies, and how States can access USGS data and information through USGS tools and webpages. State drinking-water program personnel are encouraged to attend, along with anyone else who is interested and would like to participate.

Speakers:

Neil Dubrovsky, Chief of the USGS Water Resources Assessment Branch

Ken Belitz, Chief of the USGS NAWQA Groundwater Assessments

Patty Toccalino, Deputy Program Coordinator USGS National Water Quality Program (filling in for Mike Focazio, Program Coordinator USGS Toxic Substances Hydrology and Contaminant Biology Programs)
