Earlier this year, EPA’s Office of Wastewater Management (OWM) released a report titled Moving Toward Sustainability: Sustainable and Effective Practices for Creating Your Water Utility Roadmap. Based in the principles of Effective Utility Management (EUM), this document outlines a path for water and wastewater utilities to take in an effort to both enhance their business practices and maintain compliance with all appropriate regulatory requirements.
On October 30, EPA is hosting the first in a series of webinars to explain this approach and highlight utility-based success stories.
DATE: October 30, 2014
TIME: 12:30-2:30PM (eastern)
This event will cover:
Overview of Moving Toward Sustainability: Sustainable and Effective Practices for Creating Your Water Utility Roadmap: Jim Horne, U.S. EPA
Community Sustainability: Sue Hann, City Manager – Palm Bay Florida and Andy Kricun, Camden County Municipal Utility Authority
Future webinars are scheduled for March, May, and June 2015. They will cover topics such as financial sustainability, utility business planning, water resource adequacy, performance management & continual improvement, employee & leadership development, and operational resiliency.
