State Drinking water programs are encouraged to attend this free ASDWA webinar that will share the findings of a recent study on “National Trends in Drinking Water Violations” and explore research priorities that might help with the development of new regulations and reduce violations in the future.

Webinar Presentations:

Alan Roberson, ASDWA’s Executive Director, will summarize some of his past drinking water policy research when working at the American Water Works Association and will pose some water policy research questions that might help with the development of new regulations and/or reduce violations.

Dr. Maura Allaire, with the Department of Urban Planning and Public Policy at the University of California at Irvine, will summarize her recent study on “National Trends in Drinking Water Violations” that evaluates spatial and temporal patterns in health-related violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act using a panel dataset of 17,900 community water systems over the period 1982–2015. The paper identifies vulnerability factors, increasing time trends, and violation hot spots, which can allow for public policies that target underperforming water systems and strategies for improving national drinking water quality.
