EPA Posts Partnership Webinars

In 2012, EPA and USDA conducted a series of webinars promoting the range of water system partnerships.  The webinars featured partnership case studies and highlighted the roles and perspectives of state regulatory agencies, funders, system decision-makers and technical assistance providers.

All four webinars are now available on EPA’s website at http://water.epa.gov/infrastructure/sustain/partnerships.cfm.  For state drinking water programs, ASDWA will also  post these presentations in the library section of the CapCert Community.
