Water System Partnerships Webinar

EPA and USDA are collaborating to host the third in a 4-part webinar series about water system partnerships (formerly known as restructuring).  You are invited – and encouraged to include your water systems as well as your state funding colleagues and TA providers – to hear from states and funders as they describe how they facilitate these partnerships.

Water system to water system partnerships that include operator mentoring, sharing equipment, third-party billing, contract management, and even ownership transfer are real solutions to address everything from shrinking utility resources, to regulatory compliance issues to operator know-how.  But what can state regulators and funders do to facilitate these partnerships?

Join us for “Facilitating Partnerships: State and Funder Perspectives” and learn about:
– Benefits to encouraging system partnerships.
– How state regulators are facilitating partnerships.
– Strategies for working with very small systems.
– How funders encourage partnerships.

DATE:  Wednesday, August 8, 2012
TIME:  1:00 – 3:00 pm (eastern)
